8     (Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2006)
9     Sec. 13. Investigation of applications for permits and
10 certificates of recognition. The Agency or the State Board
11 shall make or cause to be made such investigations as it or the
12 State Board deems necessary in connection with an application
13 for a permit or an application for a certificate of
14 recognition, or in connection with a determination of whether
15 or not construction or modification which has been commenced is
16 in accord with the permit issued by the State Board or whether

18 permit having been obtained. The State Board may issue

1 memoranda and the giving of testimony before the State Board,
2 by a proceeding as for contempt, or otherwise, in the same
3 manner as production of evidence may be compelled before the
4 court.
5     The State Board shall require all health facilities
6 operating in this State to provide such reasonable reports at
7 such times and containing such information as is needed by it
8 to carry out the purposes and provisions of this Act. Prior to
9 collecting information from health facilities, the State Board
10 shall make reasonable efforts through a public process to
11 consult with health facilities and associations that represent
12 them to determine whether data and information requests will
13 result in useful information for health planning, whether
14 sufficient information is available from other sources, and
15 whether data requested is routinely collected by health
16 facilities and is available without retrospective record
17 review. Data and information requests shall not impose undue
18 paperwork burdens on health care facilities and personnel.
19 Health facilities not complying with this requirement shall be
20 reported to licensing, accrediting, certifying, or payment
21 agencies as being in violation of State law. Health care
22 facilities and other parties at interest shall have reasonable
23 access, under rules established by the State Board, to all
24 planning information submitted in accord with this Act
25 pertaining to their area.
26     Among the reports to be required by the State Board are
27 facility questionnaires for health care facilities licensed
28 under the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act, the
29 Hospital Licensing Act, the Nursing Home Care Act, or the End
30 Stage Renal Disease Facility Act. These questionnaires shall be
31 conducted on an annual basis and compiled by the Agency. For
32 health care facilities licensed under the Nursing Home Care
33 Act, these reports shall include, but not be limited to, the
34 identification of specialty services provided by the facility

2 care facilities that contain beds, the reports shall also
3 include the number of staffed beds, physical capacity for beds
4 at the facility, and beds available for immediate occupancy.
