The program included a brief overview of reporting basics, supplemental reporting, communications with the licensing board and NPDB, subpoena responses, responding to “failure to report” citations and requests from licensing boards for peer review information and interviews, and more!

HLB attorneys discussed legal considerations, compliance concerns, confidentiality protections, practical pointers, and risk reduction strategies available to Medical Staff Administrators and other members of Medical Staff and Hospital Leadership involved in the reporting process.
