CROWNWeb Extends Phase 3 Through April 20


CROWNWeb is inching closer its national rollout.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) said on March 22 that it has extended the Phase 3 pilot through April 20—an additional four weeks—to give dialysis facilities more time to complete QIMS registration ahead of the national release.

At the end of this four-week period, CMS said it will provide another update to the renal community regarding the end of the Phase 3 pilot and the national release timeline.

In addition, CMS said that all users with active QIMS accounts can log into CROWNWeb and enter data into the system through the remainder of the Phase 3 pilot.

Also, to help with the CROWNWeb log-in process, renal facilities can attends a special "CROWNWeb At First Glance - Accessing and Understanding CROWNWeb" Town Hall event on March 29 at  2pm ET. 

The event will focus on accessing CROWNWeb, walk users through the initial login process, and highlight areas that facility users should pay attention to when preparing their accounts for use during the National Release.
