Interactive Training Programs

The Data Banks have created several training programs to educate reporters about the Data Banks. Designed to assist users with applying the Data Banks' policies to everyday situations and show the step-by-step processes for submitting and changing reports, the programs serve as valuable resources to users.

The programs help health care entities, State licensing boards, Federal and State agencies, State Medicaid Fraud Control Units (MFCU), and other eligible and registered entities better understand the reporting requirements for the Data Banks. The NPDB and HIPDB training programs address frequently asked questions, explain the reporting process, and test a user's ability to apply reporting requirements and policies to his or her respective agency. For example, animation and interactive flow charts are used to show the step-by-step processes for submitting, changing, and disputing reports. Interactive quizzes help users understand what types of actions are reportable to each Data Bank and describe more than 50 scenarios that result in reportable actions.
