Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Notification of cancer patients of reports to the statewide cancer registry. Revises the requirements for notification of cancer patients of reports to the statewide cancer registry that must currently be implemented by the Commissioner of Health to require the physician diagnosing a malignant tumor or cancer, at such time and in such manner as considered appropriate by the physician, to notify each patient whose name and record abstract is required to be reported to the cancer registry that personal identifying information about him has been included in the registry as required by law. This provision authorizes the physician to notify, when the notice would be, in the opinion of the physician, injurious to the patient's health or well being, the patient's authorized representative or next of kin in lieu of notifying the patient. In addition, upon request to the statewide cancer registry, the patient whose personal identifying information has been submitted to such registry has a right to know the identity of the reporter of his information to such registry. This bill is identical to SB 1010.
