National Practitioner Data Bank

The National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) was established as part of the Health Care Quality Improvement Act of 1986 and was intended to improve the quality of health care by restricting the ability of incompetent health care providers to move from State to State without disclosure of prior malpractice payments or adverse disciplinary proceedings. Codified at 45 CFR Part 60, the NPDB has potentially broad ramifications for health care providers seeking to resolve even minor, nuisance value claims. Knowing what must be reported to the NPDB, and who must report it, often plays an important role in resolution strategies for our clientele.
