          Adds reference to:                                                   
          20 ILCS 2215/4-2                from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 6504-2        
        Requires the Director of Public Health to give due  consideration      
   to  recommendations  from  statewide  organizations  of providers when      
   appointing representatives of providers to the Council.  Requires  the      
   Council  to  assess by December 31, 2001, whether its data collection,      
   compilation, analysis, and reporting functions could more economically      
   be performed by other entities.  Requires the Council  to  enter  into      
   agreements  for  such  performance  if  its  assessment determines the      
   functions can be performed more economically.  Requires the Council to      
   notify,  and  upon  request  give  copies   to,   providers   of   any      
   provider-specific data to be released or disseminated.
