NorTex is a primary care practice-based research network (PBRN) which functions as a collaborative effort to conduct primary care research among North Texas primary care practices, including family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, and obstetrics/gynecology clinics.

Mission
Be the team of choice for innovative primary care and public health research.

Vision
Create solutions toward a healthier community through interdisciplinary primary care, public health service, research and education.

NorTex is housed in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth. NorTex is registered with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) PBRN registry.

Collaborators
NorTex has grown to include a collaboration of institutions in North Texas, including John Peter Smith Hospital Network, Cook Children’s Health Network, UNT Health, Parkland Health and Hospital Systems, Tarrant County Public Health and various community and private clinics located across the metroplex and in rural Texas. Our overall goal is to revolutionize the way we conduct primary care and public health related research with NorTex being the inter-locking key.

The success of NorTex is measured by the increasing number of community partners, research studies reflecting the interests and needs of these partners, as well as the translation of research applications into primary care practice with the intention of improving the health of our community.
