Texas Health Resources focuses efforts on patient behavior

Arlington-based Texas Health Resources said Tuesday it has partnered with a national health-promotion company to "dramatically change the way health care is accessed by and delivered to the people of North Texas." THR and Healthways said their 10-year agreement strives to "enable individuals to become active participants in their well-being rather than simply consumers of health care services."

"We think this could become a model for other communities across the nation," said Doug Hawthorne, CEO of THR, which says it treats more patients than any other North Texas health care system. Its 24 hospitals include the Harris Methodist and Presbyterian properties, as well as Arlington Memorial Hospital and other facilities. "We are leading the way to a new model of health services based on a physician-directed care team approach designed to keep people healthy and out of hospitals except when they are acutely sick or injured," Hawthorne said.

Now this is an interesting program. It may sound a bit strange at first but actually makes sense when you think about it. I'm definitely for encouraging a healthy and proactive lifestyle.

My Health care hospital was established in 1992 as sole-proprietorship concern of Dr. Qamar zaman khan with the objective to serve the humanity and men kind.
It is working well now a days.
