Working closely with the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health and the greater community in a Community Care HUB (HUB) for Cambria and Somerset counties. Developed by the Pathways Community HUB Institute, the HUB model aims to impact health outcomes by addressing risk factors associated with poor health outcomes. A HUB is an organized, outcome focused, network of Care Coordination Agencies (CCAs) who hire and train community health workers (CHWs) and connect at-risk individuals to needed services. The community health workers meet with participants face-to-face, preferably in their homes, then guide them through one or more of 21 Pathways designed to address their needs. The HUB model involves the collaboration of all community resources to reduce both medical and social barriers to care, like employment, housing and transportation, for individuals with complex health needs. Community Health Worker: builds individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy; serves as a liaison between communities and health care agencies; provides guidance and social assistance to community residents; enhances community residents’ ability to effectively communicate with healthcare providers; provides culturally and linguistically appropriate health education; advocates for individual and community health; provides referral and follow-up services or otherwise coordinates care; identifies and helps enroll eligible individuals in federal, state, and local private or nonprofit health and human services programs.
