Refugee health clinics in TX are required to submit a health assessment form for every newly arrived client within their jurisdiction. The Texas Department of State Health Services has implemented a statewide web-based data system, The Electronic System for the Health Assessment of Refugees (eSHARE), to ensure consistently high and timely rates of quality health assessments for all eligible clients.
The analysis of the submitted health outcome data allows for enhanced monitoring of refugee clinics throughout the state, as well as improved surveillance of infectious diseases and other health conditions. Epidemiological summaries of refugee health assessment data are disseminated to program stakeholders and are available by request. Download Form (PDF, 204 KB)
