Q&A: Queries

  1. What are the benefits of using Continuous Query instead of submitting One-Time Queries?

    Continuous Query keeps eligible entities continually informed about reports of medical malpractice payments and certain adverse actions concerning enrolled practitioners. Enrolling practitioners in Continuous Query provides ongoing monitoring of NPDB reports. It eliminates the need for staff to manually submit queries. Eligible entities receive email notifications within 24 hours of a report being received by the NPDB on an enrolled practitioner.
