All health care providers that prescribe or dispense life-ending medication must submit a copy of the dispensing record to the department of health as well as any other documentation specified by the department within 30 days. The prescribing physician must submit documentation to the department of health within 30 days of the patient’s death.

Information obtained by the department of health pursuant to the Death with Dignity Act is not a public record. However, the department must use the information collected to create an annual statistic report for public consumption.
