Finding Immunity in Discipline: National Practitioner Data Bank, Peer Review, and Immunity

August 20, 2015
Wilderness Hotel - Wisconsin Dells, WI

Federal law requires health care entities to report adverse licensure actions against physicians. In return for a peer review process that includes due process rights for the physician, health care entities and individuals participating in the process are provided immunity from damages under any federal or state law. That immunity can be lost, however, if a health care entity fails to properly report adverse actions to the National Practitioner Data Bank. This session will help you:

  • Understand reporting obligations
  • Identify fundamental aspects of a proper peer review process
  • Understand the statutory process of disciplining employed and contract physicians while maintaining legal immunity
  • Discuss common mistakes that can jeopardize immunity
