AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation  to  hospital  sepsis
  data

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 2805-m of the  public  health  law  is  amended  by
adding a new subdivision 4 to read as follows:
  4. (A) HOSPITAL SEPSIS DATA SUBMITTED TO THE DEPARTMENT, SHALL FOR THE
INITIAL  PHASE  OF  DATA  COLLECTION  BE CONSIDERED A "PILOT PHASE", THE
PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO ENSURE THE COMPLETENESS AND ACCURACY OF REPORTING
BY HOSPITALS.
  (B) FOR DATA REPORTED DURING THE  PILOT  PHASE,  HOSPITAL  IDENTIFIERS
SHALL BE ENCRYPTED BY THE DEPARTMENT IN ANY AND ALL PUBLIC DATABASES AND
REPORTS.  THE  DEPARTMENT SHALL PROVIDE EACH HOSPITAL WITH AN ENCRYPTION
KEY FOR THAT HOSPITAL ONLY TO PERMIT ACCESS TO ITS OWN PERFORMANCE  DATA
FOR  INTERNAL  QUALITY  IMPROVEMENT  PURPOSES.  HOSPITAL SPECIFIC PUBLIC
REPORTING OF SEPSIS DATA INCLUDING, BUT NOT  LIMITED  TO  RISK  ADJUSTED
SEPSIS  MORTALITY  RATES, MAY REQUIRE UP TO, BUT NO MORE THAN, TWO YEARS
OF "PILOT PHASE" COLLECTION DEPENDING ON THE  VALIDITY  AND  RELIABILITY
OUTCOMES OF THE DATA COLLECTED.
  (C)  AS  DESCRIBED  IN THE REGULATIONS PERTAINING TO THE SUBMISSION OF
DATA  ON  SEPSIS  TO  THE  DEPARTMENT,  CONSULTATION  WITH   APPROPRIATE
NATIONAL,  HOSPITAL  AND  EXPERT STAKEHOLDERS WILL ASSIST IN DETERMINING
THE APPROPRIATE PUBLIC RELEASE OF HOSPITAL PERFORMANCE.
  (D) THE DEPARTMENT SHALL ISSUE REGULAR REPORTS AS NEEDED TO  HOSPITALS
ASSESSING  THE ACCURACY OF THE DATA SUBMITTED DURING THE PILOT PHASE AND
PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR IMPROVING THE ACCURACY OF DATA REPORTING.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
