Consolidated Renal Operations in a Web-enabled Network (CROWN) is a Web-based data-collection system mandated by CMS to enable dialysis facilities to meet portions of the Conditions for Coverage for ESRD Dialysis Facilities. CROWNWeb helps the renal community transition from a legacy paper-based data-collection method to an electronic “always on” format. The system is designed to help improve patient care efforts by reducing the time it takes CMS to produce clinical performance results. CROWNWeb functions as an important data source for ESRD QIP performance measures.
All Medicare-certified dialysis facilities, as well as Renal transplant and Veterans Administration facilities, can submit ESRD program administrative and clinical data to CMS in CROWNWeb.

Transition to ICD-10 and 2728 Form Diagnosis Codes
CMS released a list of recommended ICD-10-CM codes to be used for Primary Cause of Renal Failure (effective October 1, 2015). This code list, however, does not include all renal-specific ICD-10 CM codes; please use the ICD-10 CM Manual to validate an appropriate code.
CMS has posted a complete list of the 2016 ICD-10-CM valid codes and code titles on the CMS website at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/2016-ICD-10-CM-and-GEMs.html
