The “Texas Healthy Communities” has been introduced and implemented in Texas, funded by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) to provide technical help, training facilities and referral to various communities, to help them formulate better policies for promoting overall health and preventing disease in the state. An effort is made to provide better access to healthcare facilities and reduce (and gradually remove) health disparities, reduce exposure to tobacco and reducing the complications associated with chronic diseases.
A free service called the ImmTrac, which registers all the immunizations in the state, was recently launched. The data collected by ImmTrac is kept secure and confidential, though it can be made available to authorized professionals like private and public healthcare providers, doctors and nurses. It is one of the initiatives to increase immunization coverage in the state. The availability of data ensures that all providers authorized to use ImmTrac can completely track the immunization schedules of residents and thus help insure that no one misses an immunization, gets over-immunized and everyone receives timely alerts for upcoming immunization shots.
The TCID (Texas Center for Infectious Disease) has been set up to provide high quality medical aid to people diagnosed with tuberculosis.
