Employment Termination in the Absence of Professional Review Did Not Merit Report to National Practitioner Data Bank

Published in the American Bar Association November 2017 Newsletter

The National Practitioner Data Bank (“NPDB”) was created by Congress to serve as a repository of information regarding adverse actions taken against medical professionals. Brought about with the stated goal of increasing the quality of healthcare, as well as curbing healthcare fraud and abuse, the NPDB created a national resource to be used as a credentialing reference by various health-related organizations, consolidating a body of information that was previously fragmented among disparate state and federal sources. Information compiled in the NPDB is not available to the general public, but can be accessed by a number of registered entities, including hospitals, state licensing agencies, medical malpractice insurers.
