New Infographic Contrasts Entities vs. Agents – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889

The NPDB has released a new infographic that defines an entity, an authorized agent, and the relationship between them.

Entities are health care organizations that are authorized to query and report to the NPDB, as well as to authorize agent organizations to query and/or report on their behalf. Authorized agent organizations must be given permission by an entity to query and/or report on its behalf. Both the entity and their authorized agent must be registered with the NPDB. In addition, entities are ultimately responsible for meeting NPDB reporting and querying requirements, regardless of having designated an authorized agent.

As we develop more infographics about common topics of interest, we will continue to update you in future issues of NPDB Insights.
