Tejas Health Management (Tejas), a Non-Profit Association, was formed with the idea of increasing the efficiency, access, and service potential for Community Centers and other community-based organizations throughout Texas. This Association is a unique collaboration between three Community Centers in Central Texas; Integral Care, Bluebonnet Trails Community Services, and the Center for Health Care Services, each with demonstrated leadership and innovation in the health arena for over 40 years.
Participation in Tejas is open to all community-based care provider organizations serving Texans. Tejas continues to grow and expand in Membership. Emergence Health Network, Tropical Texas Behavioral Health, and Hill Country MHDD Centers have joined the Association.
In addition to the Member Centers, Tejas provides services under contracts with nearly two-thirds of the Community Behavioral Health Centers in Texas to support business process improvement, financial sustainability, IT solutions, and contracting. Tejas also has contracts with a network of non-traditional community providers that includes non-institutional service providers who, historically, have addressed the health and well-being of many of the highest-needs individuals in their communities but have not developed capacity to contract and implement those services for Health Plans. Taking a population health and intervention approach, Tejas bridges the gap between Health Plans and Community-Based Service Providers.
Tejas offers a suite of administrative and business consulting services aimed at helping Community Behavioral Health Centers, Payors, healthcare providers, and community-based services develop and deliver programs, plans, and operations that reduce healthcare costs while improving quality. In addition to developing population health solutions, Tejas provides consultation and technical assistance to Community-Based Organizations, implements information technology solutions to common problems, and provides training and development around healthcare issues.
