State Board of Medicine disciplines doctors for failure to update info for DHP website
As reported here, two Virginia doctors were disciplined for failing to provide information on claims and license suspensions for publication on the website of the Department of Health Professions. Board officials explained regarding the information on the DHP website that "they rely on physicians to 'self report' most information to the site, and that they lack the staff to verify much of the data." The Board does verify information on the website "relating to its own disciplinary actions." The Practitioner Information website can be found here.
