Support Patient Safety by Using Continuous Query – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
The NPDB developed Continuous Query in response to the health care community’s desire to promote patient safety and organizations’ need to meet accreditation standards that require ongoing monitoring of practitioners. Continuous Query alerts organizations about new actions related to one or more of their enrolled practitioners—usually within minutes, but no more than 24 hours later (compared to the disclosure cycle taking much longer than that for one-time queries, depending on credentialing schedules). In 2017, nearly 6,000 health care organizations used Continuous Query and received 245,000 notifications of reports in the NPDB on one or more of their enrolled practitioners.
