Q&A: General Information

  1. What happened to the HIPDB?

    While the NPDB and the HIPDB were established for different purposes, overlap existed in some reporting and querying requirements. To eliminate this duplication, Congress passed Section 6403 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which consolidated NPDB operations with those of the former HIPDB. Information previously collected and disclosed by the HIPDB is now collected and disclosed by the NPDB.
