Andrew Wachler Quoted in the American Medical News Regarding National Practitioner Data Bank’s Move to Shut Down Public Access
Andrew Wachler, principal of Wachler & Associates, P.C., was quoted in last week’s American Medical News article regarding the National Practitioner Data Bank’s move to shut down public access to anonymous information about physician activities. The move was made to protect physician confidentiality after a reporter was able to identify an individual physician’s record for a news article. Mr. Wachler stated that the government acted correctly in shutting down public access, which will result in the protection of the peer review process.
