Today on the show I am talking with Sharon Peters. Sharon is a partner in the Portland office of Lewis Brisbois and is a member of the firm’s Healthcare and Labor and Employment practices. Sharon and I are talking about the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB). The NPDB is a web-based repository of reports containing information on medical malpractice payments and certain adverse actions related to health care practitioners, providers, and suppliers. Established by Congress in 1986, it is a workforce tool that prevents practitioners from moving state to state without disclosure or discovery of potentially damaging performance issues. With the increasing focus on quality care and patient safety I think this is a very timely topic and Sharon provides some great insights.
