The commissioner has access only to medical data and health records related to maternal morbidities and deaths that occur on or after July 1, 2000, including the names of the providers and clinics where care was received before, during, or related to the pregnancy or death.  The commissioner has access to records maintained by substance use treatment facilities, law enforcement, the medical examiner, coroner, or hospitals for the purpose of providing the name and location of any pre-pregnancy, prenatal, or postpartum care received by the subject of the data.

(b) Information classified under paragraph (a) shall not be subject to discovery or introduction into evidence in any administrative, civil, or criminal proceeding.  Such information otherwise available from an original source shall not be immune from discovery or barred from introduction into evidence merely because it was utilized by the commissioner in carrying out maternal morbidity and death studies.

 

(c) Summary data on maternal morbidity and death studies created by the commissioner, which does not identify individual data subjects or individual providers, shall be public in accordance with section 13.05, subdivision 7.
