Michigan permits the disclosure to a “review entity” of information and data on an individual’s physical condition, psychological condition, the appropriateness and quality of care provided to an individual, and the qualification and performance of a provider.

“Review entity” refers to various peer review committees, health plans, professional review organizations, and patient safety organizations.

 Individuals, organizations, and entities that disclose information pursuant to this law, communicate within the scope of their duties, and publish reports or findings of a review entity are immune from civil and criminal liability unless the individual, organization, or entity acted with malice.

Health plans or networks that contract with licensed health care professionals report to the department of community health all instances where a health care professional is disciplined, restricted, terminated, or resigns. The report must occur within 30 days of the relevant event.
