Does my organization have to maintain its own querying records?

Hospitals and other querying entities are welcome to store their own records of past queries, however, the NPDB maintains electronic records of all of your past queries via our Historical Query feature. The information stored in the electronic records includes:

  • practitioner name and license number,
  • authorized submitter,
  • completion date, and
  • billing information.

To view your Historical Query Summary, complete the following steps:

  • Sign into your account.
  • On the Select an Option page, select View Historical Queries. If View Historical Queries is not an option, select Query, then select View Historical Queries.
  • On the Historical Query Select page, specify the search criteria.
  • Select Search to proceed with the historical query search, or select Clear to reset your search.
  • The Historical Query Summary page displays your summary, which you can print for your records. Select landscape orientation as the layout choice for printing.
  • Select Download to download your results as either .CSV (Comma-Separated Value) or .XLS (Microsoft Excel) format. Data downloads are limited to the top 1,000 results. To download more results, refine your search parameters.

For additional information and instructions on retrieving your Historical Query Summary, visit our How to Retrieve Historical Query and Report Summaries page.

Note: Completed One-Time query responses are only available for 45 days, while Continuous Query responses are only available while the practitioner is enrolled.
