In cases where there is no intermediary, medical history information shall be delivered directly to the adopting parents or their physician. (b) Editing of information.--Except as provided in section 2905 (relating to impounding of proceedings and access to records), medical history information shall be edited before delivery or release by the Department of Public Welfare so as to remove any contents which would identify the adoptee's natural family. (c) Availability of information forms.--The Department of Public Welfare shall, upon request, make available to courts, adoption agencies and individuals medical history information forms that enable parents whose rights have been terminated to register and update medical history information with the Department of Public Welfare and with the court which entered the decree of termination. (d) Regulations.--The Department of Public Welfare shall, in consultation with the Department of Health, prescribe by regulation the procedure to be utilized and to develop the content of medical history information forms.
