Health Data Researcher Information

Attention THCIC Stakeholders, Health Data Researchers and Healthcare Facilities,

In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency requirements THCIC staff will have limited access to providing responses and data requests.

DSHS/THCIC is waiving the requirements for data collection, correction and certification as required under  until June 30, 2020. The waiver allows for all healthcare facilities required to submit data to DSHS under 25 TAC Sections 421.1-421.9, 421.61-421.69 and 421.71-421.79 to reduce the burden on staff for the submission, correction and certification of the facility’s data as required by Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapter 108. The waiver would not prohibit those healthcare facilities from submitting, correcting and certifying their data on a voluntary basis on the current schedule, due to the importance of this data for addressing similar issues in the future.
