Prohibits release of such information unless it is released to the child’s parents or guardians, an entity that administers a special needs program pursuant to a Department of Public Health contract, health care providers, government officials that need the information to carry out their duties, or to persons that need the information to perform follow-up screening. Permits disclosure for research purposes so long as the researchers submit a research proposal that receives IRB approval.
