Division of Practitioner Data Banks

DPDB, a component of BHPr, operates the NPDB and the HIPDB. DPDB is committed to developing and operating cost-effective and efficient systems that offer accurate, reliable, and timely information on practitioners, providers, and suppliers to credentialing, privileging, and government authorities.

DPDB actively addresses its mission by working closely with stakeholders - such as State licensing boards and health care entities - to ensure that all disciplinary actions are reported to the Data Bank, by monitoring data entry accuracy and completeness, and by making presentations to a variety of audiences representing State licensing boards and professionals in the health care and private sector industries.

In 2012, DPDB presented information about the Data Bank to stakeholders and constituents across the country (Figure 1).
