Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. Laws related to drug and alcohol treatment programs have confidentiality provisions. Won't a report concerning a practitioner in a treatment program violate those provisions?

    No. Only the adverse actions affecting privileges must be reported to the NPDB; the fact that a practitioner entered a treatment or rehabilitation program should not be reported.

Do you have a question about the NPDB Guidebook that you'd like answered?
