In response to President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency and associated emergency declarations by all states, the federal government, state governments, and many health care entities have taken unprecedented steps regarding licensure portability and the deployment of health workforce resources, including the expansion of telemedicine and granting of disaster privileges. HRSA’s NPDB is in a unique position to temporarily waive fees, granting NPDB access to the nation’s hospitals, health centers, health plans, state licensing boards, federal agencies, and other eligible health care SUMMARY: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Number of responses per respondent VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 Apr 16, 2020 Jkt 250001 entities in support of their efforts to mobilize and appropriately deploy health workforce professionals.
