What are hospitals in Illinois required to report?

Providers must report, within 12 hours but no later than 24 hours of a test result, all pregnant people or newborns with preliminary positive rapid HIV test results to the 24-hour Illinois Perinatal HIV Hotline (800-439-4079). Hospitals must also report aggregate statistics monthly and inform parents of the importance of treatment to prevent HIV transmission to the newborn. Every healthcare facility caring for a newborn whose birth parent was diagnosed with HIV prior to labor and delivery must report a case of perinatal HIV exposure to the appropriate health department.
