Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Patients' Right to Know Act. Provides for the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to make available to the public a profile of each licensed physician and chiropractor on an Internet website or in writing if requested by an individual. Requires on the profiles the full name of the physician, any criminal convictions for felonies and Class A misdemeanors, any Department disciplinary action within the most recent 5 years, name of medical schools attended and date of attendance and graduation, specialty board certification, the number of years in practice and locations, the name of hospital where physician has privileges, and other requirements. Permits the Disciplinary Board to provide copies of the profiles to the physicians prior to publication and allows 60 days for the physician to correct any inaccuracies. Provides the physician the option to exclude any information concerning academic appointments, teaching responsibilities, publications in peer-reviewed journals, and any professional and community service awards if the physician or chiropractor chooses not to publish such information. Sets any penalties for a violation of this Act to be provided for in the Medical Practice Act of 1987. Repeals similar provisions of the Medical Practice Act of 1987 that were enacted by Public Act 94-677, which has been held unconstitutional. Effective immediately.
