Confidentiality of records of review organization

Data and information obtained by a peer review organization must remain confidential.  The information is not discoverable, not subject to subpoena, and cannot be used as evidence against a health care provider.  Review organizations are permitted to share information or records for incident reporting systems and for adverse health care event reporting provided that the information does not identify patients individually.  A review organization may also release non-patient identifying aggregate trend data on medical error injuries and file adverse health care event reports without violating the confidentiality requirements of this law.  The confidentiality restrictions do not apply to providers seeking data through the discovery process relating to staff privileges or membership.
