How to View Electronic Notices of Action

Organizations that report medical malpractice payments, clinical privilege actions, and professional society actions to the NPDB are also required by law to notify state licensing boards of report submissions. The NPDB permits reporters to send an electronic version of the report to the appropriate state licensing board through the NPDB system if the state licensing board opts to receive electronic notifications.

State boards are notified via email when an electronic Notice of Action is ready to view.
