THCIC was directed by the 78th Texas Legislature to make available a registry of health care providers and referral groups who are available to provide or withhold life-sustaining treatment and other services relating to the Texas Advance Directives Act.

In cases in which the attending physician refuses to honor a patient's advance directive or a health care or treatment decision made by or on behalf of a patient requesting the provision of life-sustaining treatment, the registry lists health care providers and referral groups that have volunteered their readiness to consider accepting the transfer of the patient or to assist in locating a provider willing to accept the transfer of the patient.

In cases in which the attending physician refuses to comply with an advance directive or treatment decision requesting the withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment, the registry lists health care providers and referral groups that have volunteered their readiness to consider accepting the transfer of the patient or to assist in locating a provider willing to accept the transfer of the patient.
