Adult Health Care Coordination

Adult Health Care Coordination connects our Community Health Workers with patients from primary care practices and Medicaid health plans. The CHWs complete a social and medical access assessment to identify the needs of the patient. Together they craft a plan to meet chronic disease self-management goals, which include finding resources to eliminate barriers to regular and timely medical care.

Common barriers to care may include:
- unstable housing
- lack of transportation
- misunderstanding about medication instructions

Our adult program is supported in part by The Health Collaborative, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Buckeye Health Plan and CareSource.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
People with diseases and illnesses

The goal of Maternal and Child Health Care Coordination is to ensure that every person will have a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and ongoing medical care. Pregnant people in our program are referred by Medicaid health plans, physicians, United Way 211 as well as self-referrals. Each client is paired with a Community Health Worker (CHW) who provides important education about breastfeeding, safe sleep, and assists with smoking cessation resources. Referrals for follow-up and treatment of maternal depression are also addressed. We are specifically interested in connecting with African American women to help lower infant mortality. Beyond postpartum care the CHW stays connected with moms, their baby, and other children in the household. They will locate resources to find or maintain safe housing, obtain healthy food and make appointments for medical, dental, and behavioral health care.
Maternal and Child Health Care Coordination services are partially funded by OCMH and Cradle Cincinnati.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Ethnic and racial groups

HCAN delivers an Ohio Board of Nursing-approved training program and is a leader in developing Community Health Workers in Cincinnati. Our 14 week program provides the skills needed to offer community-based care coordination to those most at risk for poor health outcomes. The Community Health Worker Certification Program includes 100 hours of classroom training that addresses the core competencies in health, knowledge of social service resources, communication skills, advocacy, CPR certification, lifespan development, and basic community health worker skills. Students complete 130 hours of a community-based practicum as required by the Ohio Board of Nursing for state certification. HCAN assists students to identify and complete the required practicum with local hospitals, health care providers, and nonprofit organizations. Upon completion of the coursework and practicum, students are qualified to apply to the Ohio Board of Nursing to practice as a Certified Community Health Worker.
