The Pathways Community HUB Institute (PCHI®) – a national nonprofit that has developed a transformative care coordination model that helps communities work together to support their under-resourced populations – is pleased to announce it has recently nationally certified several entities who are successfully working to address health equity across multiple sectors.
The certification program was established in 2013 to ensure fidelity to the PCHI® Model. The Model is a community-based care coordination framework using a value-based payment methodology that brings together community organizations and services to identify individuals with modifiable risk factors – medical, social and behavioral – and connect them to services, track outcomes, and contract with payers that directly tie payment back to those outcomes.
Currently, PCHI offers four certification programs: Pathways Community HUB (PCH), Pathways Agency (PA), Technology Vendor and Community Health Worker (CHW) Instructor. Each certification has varying requirements that must be achieved in order to reach certification status.
PCHI is pleased to share in its most recent certification cycle the following organizations have achieved certification status:
