What is Community CarePort?

Physical health, behavioral health, and social support systems historically do not coordinate their services well. Community CarePort (CPAA’s Pathways HUB) provides “Care Traffic Control” to break down silos, coordinate care, and improve health. Our Care Coordinators work individually with clients to identify risk factors from all aspects of a client’s life. The Care Coordinators help clients access the services they need, including health care, housing services, education, employment, and more.

Pre-Referral Checklist

  1. Does the person have a behavioral health concern?
  • Mental health
  • Substance use

2. Is there an additional concern?

  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic disease
  • Co-occurring behavioral health

3. Are there additional risk factors?

  • Housing insecurity

Any person who can answer yes to these questions is eligible to work with a Care Coordinator.

How the Community CarePort Hub Works

  1. Clients connect with Community CarePort by calling the referral line (800-662-2499) or by being referred by someone else.
  2. The HUB assigns the client to a Care Coordinating Agency.
  3. Care Coordinators help the client prioritize goals, access services, and become more engaged in their own well-being.

Pathways HUB as an Evidence-Based Approach

CPAA’s Community CarePort implements the Pathways Community HUB model developed by Dr. Sarah Redding in Ohio. The model has been successfully implemented across the United States and has demonstrated improved outcomes and savings in multiple settings. The research literature has documented specific positive outcomes with the at-risk pregnancy population, and Pathways implementation to serve a chronic disease population is currently being studied with promising initial results.

Social Determinants of Health and Care Coordination

Care coordination services are an important aspect of care delivery because they connect people to resources that support the broader social determinants of health. Community CarePort specifically assesses all aspects that contribute to wellness and provides standardized Pathways that help people access and obtain the help they need. Examples include education, employment, and housing. The Pathways model also emphasizes that clients should set their own goals and be supported by care coordinators. This means that services are driven by the specific things that people need the most to make improvements in their own lives.
