Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 4. (a) The Department shall establish and maintain an HIV/AIDS Registry consisting of a record of all cases of HIV and AIDS which occur in Illinois, and such information concerning those cases as it deems necessary or appropriate in order to conduct thorough and complete epidemiological surveys of HIV and AIDS in Illinois, and to evaluate existing control and prevention measures. Notwithstanding any other provision of this subsection (a), the information concerning those cases included in the Registry shall include all CD4 test results, including counts and percentages of any value, and HIV viral load test results, both detectable and undetectable; provided, however, that hospitals and laboratories may only be required to report such test results for tests performed on or after 90 days after the date that the Department furnishes an electronic method for the reporting of such results to the Department and only if a hospital or laboratory has an electronic health record that enables the hospital or laboratory to identify HIV patients. Until electronic laboratory reporting is established, hospitals and laboratories shall continue to report cases of HIV and AIDS in Illinois in accordance with the administrative rules adopted by the Department that are in effect on May 1, 2011. To the extent feasible, the Registry shall be compatible with other national models so as to facilitate the coordination of information with other data bases.
    (b) To facilitate the collection of information relating to cases of HIV and AIDS, the Department shall have the authority to require hospitals, laboratories and other facilities which diagnose such conditions to report cases of HIV and AIDS to the Department or a local health authority if the local health authority serves a population of over 1,000,000 citizens or if the local health authority has been designated by the Department to collect such information, and to require the submission of such other information pertaining to or in connection with such reported cases as the Department deems necessary or appropriate for the purposes of this Act, including all CD4 and HIV viral load test results for those cases included in the Registry. The Department may promulgate rules or regulations specifying the types of information required, requirements for follow up of patients, frequency of reporting, methods of submitting such information and any other details deemed by the Department to be necessary or appropriate for the administration of this Act. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to compel any individual to submit to a medical examination or supervision.
    (c) The Director shall by rule establish standards for ensuring the protection of information made confidential or privileged under law.
