The legislature takes note of the burgeoning number of bills proposed to regulate
new health and health-related professions and occupations. The legislature further recognizes the number of allied health professions seeking
independent practice. Potentially at least one hundred forty-five discrete health professions and occupations
are recognized nationally, with at least two hundred fifty secondary job classifications.
A uniform and streamlined credentialing process needs to be established to permit
the department of health to administer the health professional regulatory programs
in the most cost-effective, accountable, and uniform manner. The public interest will be served by establishing uniform administrative provisions
for the regulated professions under the jurisdiction of the department of health regulated
after July 26, 1987.
