Overview: Hospitals must file a National Practitioner Data Bank report on any physician’s surrender of privileges if an investigation is underway. This has always been a Data Bank reporting requirement, intended to discourage plea bargains which allowed physicians to avoid being reported if they agreed to waive hearing rights. Under the new Guidebook, expanded descriptions of "investigation" and "surrender" stretch what is to be considered a reportable surrender of privileges.

OPPE and FPPE and other peer review can be affected, as are physicians’ ability to make practice decisions without inadvertently tripping Data Bank reporting triggers. Medical staff bylaws and policies need to be reworked under the new Data Bank Guidebook.

Why should you Attend: Are you aware of the revisions to the National Practitioner Data Bank Guidebook? New and surprising government interpretations of the regulatory scheme have been recently published. Most medical staff policies and bylaws in hospitals today do not reflect these changes. Legal protections for medical staff leaders and hospitals could be lost. Physicians will be surprised by reports generated under the new Guidebook.
