Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. Should investigations be reported if they do not reach a conclusion?

    No. Investigations should not be reported unless a physician or dentist surrenders or fails to renew clinical privileges, or if privileges are restricted while the practitioner is under investigation by a health care entity for possible incompetence or improper professional conduct, or in return for not conducting an investigation. In such cases, the surrender or restriction must be reported to the NPDB.
