Subject 511-5-7 REPORTS OF INDUCED TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY

Rule 511-5-7-.01 Reporting Induced Termination of Pregnancy

(1) Each induced termination of pregnancy which occurs in Georgia shall be reported directly to the Department of Public Health within ten days by the person in charge of the institution or clinic in which the termination was performed, the attending physician, or a designated representative. The Department shall establish and maintain an internet site through which the required information may be reported. The report shall contain such statistical data as the Department may deem appropriate; provided, however, that the name of the patient shall not be reported.
(2) The Department shall establish and maintain an internet site through which the information required by O.C.G.A. §§ 31-9A-6 and 31-9B-3 may be reported. In addition to the reports required under subsection (1) of this Rule, all physicians performing induced terminations of pregnancy in a health facility licensed as an abortion facility by the Department of Community Health shall report directly to the Department of Public Health through that site and provide the information requested therein. Information for each calendar year shall be reported no later than February 28 of the following year.
(3) All information reported pursuant to this Rule shall be deemed confidential, except that the Department may in its discretion release such reports or data in de-identified form or for research purposes determined by the Department to have scientific merit. Under no circumstances may information reported pursuant to this Rule be released in such a manner as to possibly lead to the identification of any physician, institution, clinic, or patient involved in an induced termination or terminations.
