11:15 am - 12:00 Noon: The Texas Medical Board's Fast-Track Procedure for Minor Violations

Presenter: Mari Robinson, Director of Enforcement, Texas Medical Board

Description:  Texas Board Implements Fast-Track Procedure for Minor Violations

The Texas Medical Board has adopted a new, fast-track enforcement procedure allowing doctors facing discipline for relatively minor administrative violations to quickly resolve the matter, rather than undergoing lengthy investigations. According to a board spokesperson, diverting administrative cases into the new streamlined procedure will allow the board to free up investigative resources that can then be redirected to more serious violations involving inadequate patient care or unprofessional conduct.

 

Physicians who choose to participate in the expedited system can agree to administrative charges and pay a fine, rather than undergo a full investigation and the resulting stress and expense. A licensee who disputes the charges can contest the violation in writing and the case will be reviewed by a board committee, or a physician may opt out of fast-track entirely and contest the charges through the board’s  traditional investigation and litigation process.
