Hospital Discharge Data

The Hospital Discharge Data Act (Alabama Act 2021-129) became effective March 31, 2021. The Act provides a mechanism for hospitals to report previously uncollected data regarding a patient's discharge from a general acute care hospital, a critical access or specialized hospital, or a separately licensed freestanding emergency department in this state. Both inpatient and outpatient discharge data will be submitted to the Alabama Department of Public Health.
