What is ACR Login?


As part of the ACR’s ongoing commitment to enhancing our systems and protecting NRDR participant data, the National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR) instituted a single sign-on (SSO) technology on December 1, 2020.  

 

The login enhancement, called ACR Login, employs technology from SSO market leader Okta that enables users to enter their login credentials one time on a single page to access all their ACR Login applications. 

 

Certain ACR Login applications, such as NRDR, now require Multifactor Authentication (MFA). MFA necessitates users entering an additional piece of information when logging in for enhanced data security, making it harder for user accounts to become compromised.

You will receive an email from nrdr@acr.org (Subject line: ACR National Radiology Data Registry - User Invitation) inviting you to set up your ACR Login account, activate your NRDR user account and user profile -- or do both.
