The Community Care HUB, an initiative of the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health, has released a video to explain its work in Cambria and Somerset counties.
A HUB is an organized, outcome-focused, network of Care Coordination Agencies (CCAs) who hire and train Community Health Workers (CHWs). Developed by the Pathways Community HUB Institute, the HUB model addresses risk factors associated with poor health outcomes. The CHWs connect at-risk individuals to needed health and social services by guiding them through one or more of 21 Pathways.
Current HUB eligibility:
- Pregnant women living in Cambria or Somerset County receiving or are eligible for Medical Assistance
- Pregnant women living in Cambria or Somerset County diagnosed with gestational diabetes
- Greater Johnstown Elementary School families with social determinants of health needs
- Somerset Area School District families with social determinants of health needs
