About TPCC Summit
Primary care is the foundation of a strong and effective health care system. When we prioritize primary care, people can live longer lives with more equitable outcomes. Systems and organizations built around a core primary care function can deliver higher quality, lower cost care.

The TPCC Summit is a space for dialogue and collective learning among professionals dedicated to improving health and health care in Texas. Every year, participants from diverse backgrounds across the public health and health care spectrum convene to address the prioritization of primary care in our health care system. Attendees leave equipped with a more comprehensive understanding of today's health care challenges, best practices, lessons learned, and available resources to improve the health of Texans.

The 11th Annual Texas Primary Care Consortium Summit: Creating Stronger Primary Care Together for a Healthier Texas will take place on November 2-3, 2023, in Houston, TX. We look forward to continuing in our shared pursuit of improving the health of Texans through accessible, equitable, and coordinated person-centered primary care.
Focus Areas

High-Quality Primary Care in Action
This focus area includes sessions that highlight successful programs, models, and policies that have helped strengthen the primary care system.

Paying for Primary Care
This focus area includes sessions that highlight how to sustain and increase investment into primary care while reducing overall costs and financial barriers. We welcome submissions that address the linkage between finance and outcomes, including proven approaches to payment reform, impact of nonmedical interventions, and value-based payment.

Innovative Approaches

We welcome submissions that discuss new ideas for addressing the variety of challenges presented by our health care system, including care delivery, data sharing, nonmedical drivers of health, access to health care, workforce capacity, interoperability, and behavioral health integration.
