CROWNWeb Data Submission Dates – Update
Data Submission Target Dates
CMS continues to emphasize January 31, 2013 as the target submission date for September 2012 – December 2012 CROWNWeb clinical/vascular access data. However, facilities with outstanding data for any incomplete month that cannot meet this date will still be able to submit data in CROWNWeb. CMS will keep all clinical months (May 2012 – December 2012) open in CROWNWeb until further notice. CMS is assessing when to close data submissions for the various clinical months and will provide advance notice to facilities prior to closing.
For January 2013 CROWNWeb data, CMS has established February 28, 2013 as the target submission date. Facilities should submit all data for January 2013 by 11:59 PM ET on February 28th. CMS continues to evaluate the status of data submissions, and will provide information on upcoming submission target dates in the future.
CMS-2744 Annual Facility Survey
Dialysis facilities can begin the CMS-2744 Annual Facility Survey process in CROWNWeb, if all patient/clinical data has been entered for 2012. CMS is currently establishing a submission schedule for the CMS-2744, and will announce timelines for the submission of this form in the upcoming weeks.
A Web-Ex training on the CMS-2744 has also been scheduled for Feb. 13th, 2013. You can sign up for this and training on a variety of other CROWNWeb subjects on the Project CROWNWeb website: http://www.projectcrownweb.org/pages/training. In addition, CMS has announced they will release a detailed training module that outlines the use of available resources from within CROWNWeb to research and resolve errors identified on the CMS-2744 form prior to the submission to the ESRD Network.
There are earlier bulletins on CROWNWeb.
