California Parkinson's Disease Reporting

California Health and Safety Code (HSC) 103860-103870 requires healthcare providers diagnosing or providing treatment to Parkinson’s disease patients to report each case of Parkinson’s disease to CDPH. Per recent legislation with CA SB97, beginning July 1, 2018, a hospital, facility, physician and surgeon, or other health care provider diagnosing or providing treatment to Parkinson’s disease patients must report each case of Parkinson’s disease to the department, as prescribed. The California Parkinson’s Disease Registry (CPDR) will be a statewide population based registry that will be used to measure the incidence and prevalence of Parkinson’s disease.
