(d)  The sponsoring organization shall maintain such records for a period of at least five (5) years following the provision of health care services and shall furnish such records upon request to any regulatory board established under this title.

(e)  Compliance with subsections (a) and (b) shall be prima facie evidence that the sponsoring organization has exercised due care in its selection of health care providers.
