Master Account Holder Quarterly DFC/DFR Requirements

Your facility’s Master Account Holder (MAH) Password and User Accounts on DialysisData.org must be re-established in order to retrieve your facility’s DFR and December 2018 QDFC preview file. On December 13, 2018 all MAH passwords were reset and user accounts for https://www.DialysisData.org disabled. Networks are providing new passwords to facility MAHs. Facility MAHs must log in to their master account to re-enable or add facility user accounts and grant permissions prior to the start of the February 1, 2019 QDFC/QDFR Preview Period. MAHs must create a separate user account to be able to view DFRs and QDFC data, as their MAH account only manages user accounts and cannot view data.

An FAQ page is available on https://www.DialysisData.org, accessible without logging in. Facilities having difficulty logging in or that have other questions may use the “Contact Us” form at https://www.DialysisData.org or call 855-764-2885 M-F, 7am-1pm PST.

It is the MAH’s responsibility to update user contact information (including their own), transfer MAH credentials within the facility appropriately, review and enable existing user accounts, and set user-specific permissions. If MAH credentials are passed on within your facility to a new MAH, please notify your Network and update the contact information on https://www.DialysisData.org to reflect a new contact person for the MAH.
