Q&A: Eligible Entities

  1. Are ACOs considered eligible entities for the purposes of reporting to and querying the NPDB?

    It depends. An ACO may be considered a "health care entity" depending on the particular activities it engages in. If ACOs are credentialing and privileging practitioners, they would be considered health care entities for the purposes of reporting and querying, so long as they are engaged in professional review activities through a formal review process.
