    9         394.9082 Behavioral health managing entities.—
   11  The department shall develop, implement, and maintain standards
   12  under which a managing entity shall collect utilization data
   13  from all public receiving facilities situated within its
   14  geographic service area. As used in this subsection, the term

   16  licensure requirements of and is designated by the department to
   17  operate as a public receiving facility under s. 394.875 and that
   18  is operating as a licensed crisis stabilization unit.
   19         (a) The department shall develop standards and protocols
   20  for managing entities and public receiving facilities to be used
   21  for data collection, storage, transmittal, and analysis. The
   22  standards and protocols must allow for compatibility of data and
   23  data transmittal between public receiving facilities, managing
   24  entities, and the department for the implementation and
   25  requirements of this subsection. The department shall require
   26  managing entities contracted under this section to comply with
   27  this subsection by August 1, 2014.
   28         (b) A managing entity shall require a public receiving
   29  facility within its provider network to submit data, in real
   30  time or at least daily, to the managing entity for:
   31         1. All admissions and discharges of clients receiving
   32  public receiving facility services who qualify as indigent, as
   33  defined in s. 394.4787; and
   34         2. Current active census of total licensed beds, the number
   35  of beds purchased by the department, the number of clients
   36  qualifying as indigent occupying those beds, and the total
   37  number of unoccupied licensed beds regardless of funding.
   38         (c) A managing entity shall require a public receiving
   39  facility within its provider network to submit data, on a
   40  monthly basis, to the managing entity which aggregates the daily
   41  data submitted under paragraph (b). The managing entity shall
   42  reconcile the data in the monthly submission to data received by
   43  the managing entity under paragraph (b) to check for
   44  consistency. If the monthly aggregate data submitted by a public
   45  receiving facility under this paragraph is inconsistent with the
   46  daily data submitted under paragraph (b), the managing entity
   47  shall consult with the public receiving facility to make
   48  corrections as necessary to ensure accurate data.
   49         (d) A managing entity shall require a public receiving
   50  facility within its provider network to submit data, on an
   51  annual basis, to the managing entity which aggregates the data
   52  submitted and reconciled under paragraph (c). The managing
   53  entity shall reconcile the data in the annual submission to data
   54  received and reconciled by the managing entity under paragraph
   55  (c) to check for consistency. If the annual aggregate data
   56  submitted by a public receiving facility under this paragraph is
   57  inconsistent with the data received and reconciled under
   58  paragraph (c), the managing entity shall consult with the public
   59  receiving facility to make corrections as necessary to ensure
   60  accurate data.
   61         (e) After ensuring accurate data under paragraphs (c) and
   62  (d), the managing entity shall submit the data to the department
   63  on a monthly and annual basis. The department shall create a
   64  statewide database for the data described under paragraph (b)
   65  and submitted under this paragraph for the purpose of analyzing
   66  the payments for and the use of crisis stabilization services
   67  funded by the Baker Act on a statewide basis and on an
   68  individual public receiving facility basis.
   69         (f) The department shall adopt rules to administer this
   70  subsection.
   71         (g) The department shall submit a report by January 31,
   72  2015, and annually thereafter, to the Governor, the President of
   73  the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives
   74  which provides details on the implementation of this subsection,
   75  including the status of the data collection process and a
   76  detailed analysis of the data collected under this subsection.
   77         (h) The implementation of this subsection is subject to
   78  specific appropriations provided to the department under the
   79  General Appropriations Act.
