Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Medical Practice Act of 1987. Changes the period of time within which certain disciplinary action proceedings concerning licensure under the Act must be commenced from 3 years to 5 years and provides that, except for actions based on grounds concerning cheating on or attempting to subvert licensing examinations, practicing under a false or an assumed name, and fraud or misrepresentation in applying for, procuring, or renewing a license, actions must be commenced within 8 years (rather than 5 years). Provides for the public release of individual profiles on persons licensed under the Act, including information relating to criminal charges, administrative disciplinary actions, hospital privilege revocations, and medical malpractice awards. Provides that a physician may elect to include certain information in his or her profile. Provides that certain information collected for physician profiles is not confidential. Provides that, when collecting information or compiling reports intended to compare physicians, the Disciplinary Board shall require that only the most basic identifying information from mandatory reports may be used, and details about a patient or personal details about a physician that are not already a matter of public record through another source must not be released.
