CHAPTER 62 COMMUNITY HEALTH MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

S.F. 320

AN ACT relating to the development of a community health management information system.

Be It Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:

Section 1. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS. The general assembly finds that the development of a community health management information system will result in a more efficient and cost- effective health care claims process; provide an efficient mechanism for the exchange of medi- cal and claims information among providers and other interested entities; provide communi- ties with information on the cost, appropriateness, and effectiveness of health care providers; and provide information to employers and researchers which will allow for benefit plan analy- sis, and medical effectiveness and related studies. The general assembly finds that the exchange of such medical and claims information, while vital in the effort to control health care adminis- trative costs and in analyzing benefit plans and medical effectiveness, must be done such that all unnecessary identifying information remains confidential; that authorized users of the sys- tem must keep such information confidential; and that the privacy rights of individuals must not be violated as a result of the exchange of such information. The general assembly also finds that the implementation of such a system will result in a reduction of the number of paper claim forms that need to be completed, a reduction in the error rate on such forms, an improve- ment in the overall data communication among affected parties; and a reduction in health care administrative costs.
