Contracting

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