Law requires electronic death registration
Texas law requires all cause-of-death information and medical certifications to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to be submitted electronically through the state's online death registration system, the Texas Electronic Registrar (TER) at www.dshs.state.tx.us/vs/edeath/default.shtm.
Physicians must register with DSHS to participate in the online death registration. Penalties for noncompliance start at $500. If you are cited, you should consider contacting your own retained counsel for legal advice and representation for your situation, because a response to the TMB will be time sensitive.For additional questions, e-mail help-TER@dshs.state.tx.us or go to the TER Web site at www.dshs.state.tx.us/ vs/edeath/terhelp.shtm.
