Texas Department of Health, Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development:
An Inventory of Texas Medical Facilities Inventory and Utilization Reports at the Texas State Archives, 1973-1983
The Bureau of State Health Planning and Resource Development of the Texas Department of Health conducts health development and planning activities for the state. Part of its duties include data collection and dissemination necessary for the development and implementation of the state health plan. As part of this process, the Bureau conducts an annual inventory of medical facilities across the state by sending out questionnaires. The information collected through the questionnaires is used to establish a data base within the Department of Health. Selected data is distributed to other agencies and individuals concerned with health care in Texas through annually published reports entitled Texas Medical Facilities Inventory and Utilization.
Records in this accession consist entirely of copies of Texas Medical Facilities Inventory and Utilization reports from calendar years 1973 to 1983. This publication contains selected data collected by the Bureau in its annual inventory of medical facilities. Types of facilities inventoried include hospitals, nursing and custodial homes, rehabilitation outpatient clinics, dialysis centers, public health centers, health maintenance organizations, and migrant health projects. Data from the questionnaires includes management/ownership of the facility and the number of operating beds, admissions, discharges, patient days, outpatient visits, emergency visits, outpatient services provided, and the level of emergency care.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
