Granting Access to the NCDR™ Site
In order to access certain content on the NCDR™ Site, the institution must be a registered participant of the NCDR™. Once a Participant Agreement has been executed and participation fees have been received, the institution will be required to assign a Registry Site Manager. The Registry Site Manager will be assigned a personal User Name and Password by the ACCF for the purpose of administering this Web Site. This person assumes the responsibility for setting up additional User Names and Passwords for the institution. The User Names and contact information for all users established by the Registry Site Manager will only be accessible by the institution and the ACC. This information will not be made available to any 3rd parties. The contact information of the Registry Site Manager as well as institution demographic information may be made available to other NCDR™ participants if the Registry Site Manager elects to do so. The Registry Site Manager may go to the "Site Profile” link for information on how to opt-in or opt-out of use of this information. The information that will be made available to other NCDR™ participants include but are not limited to the Registry Site Manager’s name, e-mail address, business phone number, hospital name, city, state, zip and cath lab volume.
The User Names and Passwords assigned to the NCDR™ site users should be strictly controlled and should not be distributed to any persons outside the Institution. Once the Participant Agreement has terminated, all User Names and Passwords for the Institution will be automatically disabled.

The information maintained for each user assigned a User Name and Password can be reviewed and modified at any time only by the validated user by clicking on the "User Profile" link. The accuracy of the user data is solely the responsibility of the user.
