North Central Accountable Community of Health

The Care Coordination Workgroup within NCACH, tasked with overseeing the adoption and implementation of Community-Based Care Coordination, has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for agencies to host the Pathways HUB. The Pathways HUB model is an evidence-based community care coordination approach that removes duplication through a singular technology system to track care coordinators and outcomes. The HUB model has demonstrated effectiveness within underserved populations and been endorsed by several federal agencies such as: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, National Institute of Medicine and others. Applicants must demonstrate a working knowledge of the HUB model and are encouraged to utilize the following resources to do so: HUB Quick Start Guide and the HUB Manual.

NCACH’s goal in the Medicaid Transformation is to promote and achieve Whole Person Care. NCACH recognizes that much of a person’s overall health comes from factors outside traditional healthcare settings. The Pathways Community HUB will connect the healthcare system and social determinants of health partners to achieve the goal of improving population health in the NCACH region. By working with selected target populations through any of the 20 Pathways (Appendix A), the HUB comprehensively reduces and/or eliminates common known risk factors. NCACH has convened a regional workgroup to initiate the planning phase, including defining the target population and target outcomes. The successful applicant will be a part of the workgroup and have input into the initial target population and target outcomes. The NCACH Governing Board will have final approval of the target population and outcomes during the implementation phase.

RFPs are due April 27, 2018 by 5:00 pm and may be mailed or emailed (in PDF format) to:
