(4) The council shall determine the form and manner for facilities to report metrics for the prior calendar year. Data that identifies a resident is excluded from this requirement.

(F) Identify patterns of performance by geographic regions, and other categories the Department believes will be useful to consumers.
(G) Identify the number, severity, and scope of regulatory violations by each geographic region.

(d) Quality metric data reported to the Department under this section may not be used against the facility, as required under Or Laws 2017, ch 679, § 15(7). This section does not exempt a facility from complying with state law. Also, the Department may use quality metric data obtained during the normal course of business or compliance activity, as required by Or Laws 2017, ch 679, § 15(8).
