Two Studies Strengthen Pathways Community HUB Model Research Base

Two recent studies of Pathways HUB Community Action (PHCA) – a maternal and infant mortality HUB serving Summit County – offer compelling new evidence in support of the Pathways Community HUB Model. One study reviewed data of pregnant people enrolled in Pathways HUB Community Action (PHCA) – a maternal and infant mortality HUB that serves Summit County – who gave birth between 2016 through 2020 – and found evidence supporting the Pathways HUB model’s positive impact on pregnant clients and their infants. A second study the program offers new evidence of its return on investment. For every $1.00 spent on this program, $4.40 is returned in cost savings.

The Better Health Pathways HUB is certified by the Pathways Community HUB Institute® (PCHI) and follows the Pathways Community HUB Model. Better Health Partnership is encouraged by the expanding research base supporting the model’s impact on both client outcomes and positive return on investment and we remain committed to supporting Cuyahoga County by making this program available to all members of the Better Health Pathways HUB. Stay tuned for future research on the Better Health Pathways HUB’s impact.
