Exploring the Integration of the Healthy Start Model and the Pathways Delivery System
The Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration's National Healthy Start program and the Pathways regional delivery system both aim to address adverse perinatal outcomes and reduce associated disparities. A pilot to integrate the two models may develop an enhanced model of care by leveraging the existing assets of Healthy Start and Pathways. Other potential outcomes include increased cost savings and program accountability, reduced service duplication, and improved birth outcomes.
The Webcast will provide an overview of the Pathways regional delivery system and highlight the potential benefits of program integration.
