Patient Transfer Reporting Data

California Business and Professions Code section 2240(b) requires that any physician who performs a medical procedure outside a general acute care hospital that results in the transfer of the patient to a hospital or emergency center for medical treatment for a period exceeding 24 hours shall report that information to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). The form used to report this information must be constructed in such a manner that the physician and the patient are anonymous and the identifying information is not transmitted to the Board. The Board is required to aggregate and publish this data annually.
