Medical Home Workgroup



To enhance the development, and promote the principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home model within the state of Texas for all children and youth including those with special health care needs.



All children and youth in Texas, including children with special health care needs, will have a medical home that provides accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally competent services.



The Medical Home Work Group (MHWG) was formed in 2003 after participants of an American Academy of Pediatrics conference spearheaded efforts to encourage Texas providers to establish medical homes. The MHWG was formed to share information, facilitate progress, and coordinate efforts to promote person-centered medical homes. The group furthered DSHS’ efforts to advance medical homes for children and youth with special health care needs in the state of Texas.

A strategic plan was developed in 2006 and revised in 2010. In 2014, the MHWG defined its mission and vision, and began work on revamping its strategic plan and adding specific, measurable goals.

The group serves as a forum for members to share goals and objectives, report on their organizations’ progress, and increase knowledge of the philosophy and effectiveness of medical homes. Members of the MHWG include representatives from health and human service agencies, private and group practices, health care plans, hospital and university systems, local community organizations, and parents.
