This is from a larger except about the reporting requirements of cancer.  All information that is reported must remain confidential.  However, individuals conducting research that are qualified by the department may gain authorized access to the information, but must maintain patient confidentiality.  The Department or other regional registries may disclose confidential information to other states’ registries, local or federal bodies, or researchers that may have measures to help treat the disease.
