As Introduced: Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Requires a health care facility or health care practitioner to notify the patient in writing when the health care facility or health care practitioner alters the patient’s record within 3 business days of the alteration. Requires a health care facility or health care practitioner to provide an electronic copy of an altered record within 7 calendar days of the receipt of a written request by a patient. Requires any health care facility that accepts Medicaid to, upon written request, provide an electronic copy of an altered record within 4 business days. Provides that the failure to comply with the time limit requirements of the new provisions shall result in a rebuttable presumption that the health care record was altered to fraudulently conceal a failure to meet the applicable standard of care.
