As of January 1, 2018, new dialysis facilities can access CROWNWeb before becoming certified by their local state survey agency. ESRD Networks now have the capability of setting up a new facility in CROWNWeb prior to a CMS Certification Number (CCN) being established. While the new facility is waiting for certification, facility users/staff can be created in CROWNWeb, and data submission can begin at the facility level.
If a new facility is scheduled to open, please contact the Network as soon as possible to let us know. Timely access to CROWNWeb will ensure compliance with data submission requirements of the End Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program (ESRD QIP).
