Adding NPI Physicians and Organizations

Certify integrates with the US National Provider Identifier (NPI) database, helping companies comply with healthcare reform legislation. This feature enables companies to track expenses and invoices relating to physician relations and marketing efforts for other licensed health care professionals. 

After a Certify Administrator creates the NPI Expense Category, employees can use it to submit NPI Expenses with physician attendees
