Helping connect people to medical & social services needed for a healthy life.

The Dayton Regional Pathways HUB is a free program to help connect people to medical and social services they and their loved ones need most. Every Pathways HUB participant partners with a community health worker to empower them to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. A community health worker connects them to resources and services to manage risks one by one, allowing the participant to take charge and achieve a healthier life.

What is the Pathways HUB?

The Pathways HUB is a nationally certified, evidence-based methodology for identifying and addressing individually modifiable risk factors. It is an outcome-focused, pay-for-performance network for Care Coordination Agencies (CCAs) that hire and train Community Health Workers (CHWs) to reach out to those at greatest risk, identify their barriers, and assure that they are connected to medical, social, and behavioral health services. The Pathways HUB model works to provide positive outcomes to the community using a three-step process: identify the barriers, assign Pathways to provide care, and measure the results of that care.

Each barrier to health that is addressed is known as a “Pathway.” There are 20 Pathways in the HUB model. A Pathways Community HUB improves health, reduces costs, and promotes equity.

The Pathways Community HUB model was created over 20 years ago to specifically address disparities in infant mortality. Today, the Dayton Regional Pathways HUB strives to help low-income women have healthy pregnancies and babies and connects pregnant women to needed medical and social services – including food, housing, transportation, cribs, and diapers. In addition to helping pregnant women, it has expanded to include all other populations in our community.
