An Act To Amend Title 16 And Title 29 Of The Delaware Code Relating To The Delaware Health Information Network And The Department Of Correction.

Abstract

This Act is the result of the 2019 report of the Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset Committee’s task force under Senate Resolution No. 9 of the 150th General Assembly. This Act addresses a gap in care coordination efforts for individuals in the custody of the Department of Correction (“Department”), by ensuring that appropriate health data regarding the care provided to those individuals and the cost of the care is provided to the Delaware Health Information Network ("DHIN") for inclusion in DHIN's clinical health data repository and the Delaware Health Care Claims Database, respectively. The data will be accessed or used only consistent with DHIN's governing statute, Chapter 103 of Title 16. Under this Act, the Department or a third-party entity that provides medical care to an individual in the Department’s custody or care as of the date this Act is enacted must enroll in DHIN under § 8916(1) of Title 29 no later than 30 days after the date of enactment, and must enter into an agreement with DHIN under § 8916(2) of Title 29 no later than 90 days after the date of enactment. A third-party entity that begins providing medical care to an individual in the Department’s custody or care after the date this Act is enacted must enroll in DHIN under § 8916(1) of Title 29 no later than 30 days after beginning to provide the medical care, and must enter into an agreement with DHIN under § 8916(2) of Title 29 no later than 90 days after beginning to provide the medical care. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
