Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A physician is denied panel membership because a peer review committee determined that the physician had too many malpractice settlements. Is this denial of membership reportable to the NPDB?

    It depends. A reporting entity must report a physician's denial of panel membership based on too many malpractice settlements if the peer review committee determines that the malpractice settlements relate to the competence or conduct of the physician.
