OMB Number: 0906-0081 Expiration Date: 1/31/2027

Public Burden Statement: The NPDB is a web-based repository of reports containing information on medical malpractice payments and certain adverse actions related to health care practitioners, providers, and suppliers. Established by Congress in 1986, it is a workforce tool that prevents practitioners from moving state-to-state without disclosure or discovery of previous damaging performance. The statutes and regulations that govern and maintain NPDB operations include: Title IV of Public Law 99-660, Health Care Quality Improvement Act (HCQIA) of 1986, Section 1921 of the Social Security Act, Section 1128E of the Social Security Act, and Section 6403 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The NPDB regulations implementing these laws are codified at 45 CFR Part 60. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control number for this information collection is 0906-0081 and it is valid until 1/31/2027. This information collection is voluntary. 45 CFR Section 60.20 provides information on the confidentiality of the NPDB. Information reported to the NPDB is considered confidential and shall not be disclosed outside of HHS, except as specified in Sections 60.17, 60.18, and 60.21. Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 15 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden, to HRSA Information Collection Clearance Officer, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 14N39, Rockville, Maryland, 20857 or paperwork@hrsa.gov.

Note: The Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch, 5 C.F.R. Part 2635 generally prohibits an employee of an Executive Branch agency (e.g. HHS) from accepting gifts (such as cash, meals, gift baskets, and more) from outside sources because of the employee's official position. Gifts include but are not limited to speaking fees, travel, and lodging. Thus, we advise that gifts should not be offered to the Division of Practitioner Data Bank's (DPDB) speakers as a result of DPDB's outreach and educational efforts.
