The purpose of this project is to enlist State Medical and Osteopathic Board Executives in participating in a statewide mandatory reporting educational outreach campaign designed to reach as many hospitals and other health care organizations as possible.  One way to accomplish this is by holding an afternoon educational seminar. 

Presentations at such a seminar will clarify state statutory obligations to file timely reports, and compare and contrast state responsibilities with those of the federal data banks.  Presentations will also explain or demonstrate through case examples what the Boards do with the reports they receive. 

To help facilitate the federal data bank educational component of the program, up-to-date information about federal data bank reporting is included by clicking on the left side bar item: NPDB/HIPDB Reporting.  This information was presented at the recent AIM Institute Workshop in October 2003.


This agenda suggests potential topics and the timing for each segment.  There is also one hour devoted to questions and answers.
