The following update is being introduced as part of NRDR version 13.23 on April 29th, 2023.
NRDR New Design (CTC, LCSR, NMD)
A new user interface design is applied to the CTC, LCSR and NMD Registries. The new adjusted design includes smaller font and spacing to allow content to be more compact and require less unnecessary scrolling. Adjustments to table styles are also implemented to make working with table data user friendly. Other common items, such as error messages and account registration pages, also have a new design. Several left menu items are regrouped into the following categories: Data Management, Reports and Resources. However, the user functionality within these sections will remain the same.
NRDR will apply the new user interface to the main NRDR portal in a later release.
Report Changes (MIPS)

Exam Name Mapping Settings Change (DIR)
When a facility is linked to another Corporate Account, the mapping settings will be automatically changed to facility-level for all applicable modalities (CT, Projection X-Ray) and existing Corporate Account mappings will be retained. You will be able to adopt the mappings for your new Corporate Account if preferred or leave exams to facility-level mappings.

Files with smaller errors/warnings will be downloaded as an .xlsx file that is able to be re-uploaded back into the system on the Upload Data form.
You will now be able to view detailed data file validation information as a web form for uploads of 1,000 rows or less by selecting Show Log File in the Data File Process Status form.
