"Just as the NPDB eliminates many letters and phone
calls to obtain malpractice claims history and disciplinary
action, we feel PHDB will eliminate many steps in the process
to obtain rapid reliable hospital affiliation information.
Also, now that we route all verification requests to the
PHDB, we have more time for other important tasks in the
Medical Staff Office. I encourage all hospitals to participate."
