National Practitioner Data Bank Search on Employees

What is the National Practitioner Data Bank?

These databases of employee data are primarily an alert or flagging system intended to facilitate a comprehensive review of health care practitioners’ professional credentials. The information contained in the NPDB is intended to direct discrete inquiry into, and scrutiny of, specific areas of a practitioner’s licensure, professional society memberships, medical malpractice payment history, and record of clinical privileges. The information contained in the NPDB should be considered together with other relevant data in evaluating a practitioner’s credentials; it is intended to augment, not replace, traditional forms of credentials review.
