The Application Process

If this is your first time applying to the NRDR, you’ll need to create a corporate account and then create a facility account for each facility that will contribute data. The corporate account is an “umbrella” account for handling all administrative tasks including legal agreements, billing, and communications for one or more physical facilities. Even participants with only one physical location must have a corporate account.

For application purposes, a "facility" is a physical location where a patient receives an imaging exam, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, free-standing centers, academic centers, and other locations where imaging exams are performed. Therefore, if a practice or organization has multiple facilities that will contribute data, then each facility must have a separate NRDR facility account.

See NRDR Accounts and Profiles for details on the corporate account and facility hierarchy and establishing user profiles.

Note: Radiology groups can register and submit data to the NRDR. The radiology group does not have to be the owner of a facility to take part.

Here's what you'll need to do to get started:

  • Gather your information together before starting the process. Refer to Items You'll Need to Register to make sure you have everything you need before you start filling out an application.

  • Once you have registered a facility you may add other people as Facility Administrators, Registry Administrators and Facility Users for each facility ID, if desired.

After you have completed your application and submitted payment you can get ready to start submitting data. If you are participating in the DIR, you will receive instructions on how to install DIR Link at your facility after you have completed your registration, or you can consult with your third-party vendor to see if they can submit data on your behalf. See Submitting Data for more information on the specific methods available for each registry.

Note: You will not be able to submit data until the ACR has received a signed BAA and payment.

You will receive an e-mail confirmation once you have completed the entire registration process for a facility. The confirmation contains information pertinent to logging in to the NRDR website. If the registration is not complete the confirmation email will not be sent.

Please submit a ticket to the NRDR Support team if you have any questions or need assistance.
