Welcome to the National Renal Administrators Association health information exchange (NRAA HIE) website – the information source for renal dialysis organizations and electronic health record (EHR) vendors contracting with the NRAA HIE to submit CROWNWeb data for end-stage renal disease patients.


The National Renal Administrator's Association (NRAA) is offering use of the NRAA Health Information Exchange (HIE) to any NRAA member or non-member organization for electronic data submission of CROWNWeb quality data. To use the HIE an organization must contract with the NRAA.

Data Management

Submitting patient and clinical data to CROWNWeb through the NRAA HIE is cost-effective and efficient. The information below provides tips and techniques for making preparations for data submissions and tools to handle errors and improve the quality of data submissions.

Facility Registration

Renal dialysis organizations with an approved contract from the NRAA HIE for CROWNWeb quality data reporting must also register their individual facilities to report data for the patients at those facilities. The online registration is also where organizations can manage and update information for their registered facilities.


The NRAA HIE facilitates a process for electronic health record (EHR) vendors to become certified to electronically submit data to the CROWNWeb repository through the NRAA HIE. This certification demonstrates the vendor has the technical capability to support this process and may promote this capability as a feature of their software.
