Q&A: Subjects of Reports

  1. Why must individuals such as bookkeepers, accountants, business managers, and eyewear equipment suppliers be reported to the NPDB? They are not health care practitioners. Isn't the NPDB a repository of adverse actions taken against health care practitioners?

    Subjects of NPDB reports are not limited to health care practitioners. The NPDB also collects information related to certain adverse actions taken against health care entities, providers, and suppliers. These terms are defined in the NPDB regulations codified at 45 CFR Part 60. See also Chapter E: Reports for information about reporting health care entities, providers, and suppliers.
