(1) The Oregon Health Authority shall adopt rules pertaining to the development and implementation of the immunization registries and associated tracking and recall systems. The rules must include a process that allows a client who is 18 years of age or older, a custodial parent or guardian to control the transfer of information from the client’s immunization record or tracking and recall record when such control is necessary to protect the health or safety of the family or the client.
(2) Nothing in this section requires the consent of a parent or guardian prior to enrolling the child in the registry or restricts the registry from providing information from a tracking and recall record to a custodial parent or guardian.
(3)(a) Pursuant to rules adopted by the authority, the authority may charge fees to authorized users, except hospitals, schools and individual health care providers, for services requested from an immunization registry, including associated tracking and recall systems maintained by the authority. Authorized users may make voluntary contributions to the authority to help support the operation of an immunization registry established under ORS 433.094 (Development of immunization registry and tracking and recall system).
(b) Fees authorized under paragraph (a) of this subsection may be assessed only against managed care organizations, health maintenance organizations, physician organizations and insurance carriers that are using the information from the registries for quality improvement activities for their privately insured patients.
(c) All moneys received by the authority under this section shall be paid into the State Treasury and placed in the General Fund to the credit of the Public Health Account. Such moneys are continuously appropriated to the authority and shall be used only for the administration and enforcement of ORS 433.090 (Definitions for ORS 433.090 to 433.102) to 433.102 (Parental responsibility for immunization).
