Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Board of Medicine. Revises the statute that sets forth the data required for the profiles of doctors of medicine, osteopathy, and podiatry. The Board will require telephone numbers and access to translating services for all practice settings, and will remove the mandatory reporting of insurance participation while allowing voluntary reporting of this information. For the sole purpose of expedited dissemination of information about a public health emergency, doctors must also provide any e-mail addresses or facsimile numbers. The e-mail addresses and facsimile numbers will not be published on the profile database or released or made available for any other purpose other than the public health emergency. In addition, the scope of data to be made available on malpractice claims has been clarified to prohibit the release of specific numeric values of reported paid claims in any individually identifiable manner under any circumstances. This bill has numerous technical amendments to change references to "physicians" to the more accurate term "doctor." A second enactment clause requires the Board of Medicine to promulgate emergency regulations and a provision for the display of final disciplinary orders of the Board together with notices thereof and any summary suspension of a license.
