Why did I receive notice of a Correction Report? What is this, and what changed?

A Correction Report corrects an error or omission in a previously submitted report by replacing it. The reporting entity must submit a Correction Report as soon as possible after the discovery of an error or omission in a report. The reporting entity may submit a Correction Report as often as necessary.

Example: A hospital reports a clinical privileges action to the NPDB, generating an Initial Report. Upon receiving the Report Verification Document, the hospital identifies an error in the practitioner's address. The hospital must submit a Correction Report with the corrected address. The Correction Report replaces the Initial Report.

You can view an explanation of what has changed by signing into your report.
