NPI Validation in Passport is Live!
National Provider Identifier (NPI) Monitoring has been an additional monitoring service that we have long supported in VendorProof, and we’ve now extended that capability to providers in Passport as well!
An NPI number can be added to your bulk imports of providers, or added manually into provider profiles. From there, Passport will go out to the CMS National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) to validate the number and return a response to Passport confirming that the number is Active/Valid, Deactivated, or if it was Not Found and not a true NPI number. Passport will also display the additional information about the provider provided by the NPPES such as name, license data, business address, and taxonomy information.
NPI Responses will come back as a red or green alert in the system so you can fold in reviewing any Deactivated or Not Found NPI numbers into your overall alert review process. From a reporting standpoint, the NPI monitoring result is available both in the Monitor Tab reports and Single Provider Compliance Report alongside other monitor results. If you are interested in adding NPI validation as part of your monitoring services, please contact support or your Client Success Manager.
We’ve bulked up the Monitor Tab exports to add in additional primary source content from SSDMF and OFAC monitor results. In the past, the reporting showed the hits and user notes, but did not explicitly list names coming from the primary source. This has been added for additional audit support.
