(20 ILCS 2310/2310-33)
Access to patient claims and encounter data.
To establish reasonable billing rates for persons requesting electronic access to patient data collected under Section 4-2 of the Illinois Health Finance Reform Act for use by a requesting entity, including, but not limited to, an agency, academic research organization, or private sector organization, and for producing studies, data products, or analyses of such data. All moneys received by the Department from the billing authorized under this Section must be deposited into the Public Health Special State Projects Fund. In providing electronic access to patient claims and encounter data, the Department shall undertake all steps necessary under State and federal law, including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (12 U.S.C. §1811 et. seq.) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy regulations (45 C.F.R. Part 164), to protect patient confidentiality in order to prevent the identification of individual patients.
