The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has published a final rule to incorporate ACA requirements that eliminate duplicative data reporting to the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank (HIPDB) and the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB). Among other things, the rule establishes a transition period to transfer all data in the HIPDB to the NPDB, and, once completed, ceases operations of the HIPDB. The rule is effective May 6, 2013.
