Since 2009 Health Care Access Now (HCAN) has been working to improve the overall health status of Greater Cincinnati’s most vulnerable residents.
HCAN trains and employs Community Health Workers (CHWs). CHWs support clients so they have consistent medical care, and access to behavioral health and specialty care.
Using an evidence-based system, the pathways Hub model, CHWs provide “Educations” for any topic important to the health outcomes of the client. Topics range from diabetes self-management, disease prevention, and warning signs of preterm labor to Educations that instruct clients on how to obtain identification or life skills, such as budgeting, housekeeping, and laundry.
Over time, clients gain the power to manage their health condition, advocate for themselves in systems of care, and to make decisions that best support their well-being.
