Proposed Revisions to Documentation Requirements by the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners
The Rules Committee of the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners is considering expanding the breadth of the documentation requirements imposed on doctors of chiropractic under its regulatory program. The new documentation program currently under consideration by the Board would significantly increase the amount of information doctors are required to record and input into their documentation involving patient exam findings, bases and rationale for their diagnosis and their daily record of patient treatments. The Texas Board is following the lead of several states that have already incorporated significantly greater documentation requirements into their chiropractic regulatory program. Florida and Georgia are several of the state regulatory programs that the Texas Board has been analyzing.
