Connecting Those at Risk to Care: The Quick Start Guide to Developing Community Care Coordination Pathways

Description

This quick start guide complements the Pathways Community HUB Manual: A Guide To Identify and Address Risk Factors, Reduce Costs, and Improve Outcomes, published in 2016 by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). That manual provides beginning tools and strategies for ensuring that individuals most at risk of poor health outcomes are served in a timely, coordinated manner.

The quick start guide is a reference and resource for public and private stakeholders engaged in improving the system for identifying and connecting at-risk individuals within a community to appropriate health and social services. The target audience includes all those involved in designing, implementing, and financing services related to care coordination.

This guide provides an overview of the process, as well as tools and resources needed to develop a HUB. The guide includes the following sections:

  • Overview
  • Why create a Community HUB?
  • How to create and use a Pathways Community HUB
