Improving the health and wellness of medical professionals with compassion, support, accountability, and advocacy.
NCPHP is the only organization in North Carolina for physicians, physician assistants, perfusionists, and anesthesia assistants offering identification, intervention, and rehabilitation programs that are non-disciplinary and confidential in practice. NCPHP can be differentiated from other programs for impairment because state and federal legislation provides or allows for
Immunity from liability for hospitals while performing peer review functions
Confidentiality ensuring the practitioner’s identity is protected if patient care has not been affected
Advocacy for successful participants with the NC Medical Board, insurance companies, employers, families, and others
Leverage of the NC Medical Board’s authority in licensing when the referred practitioner’s impairment is confirmed and their denial places them in imminent danger to themselves or their patients
A monitoring process that contributes to the high recovery rate
Financial assistance for indigent participants
