Congratulations to HCGC on Two Years of the HUB!
CMA affiliate Healthcare Collaborative of Greater Columbus (HCGC) is celebrating two years of the HUB!

The HUB is different from other referral networks or programs in Ohio because it tracks risks, connections, and outcomes via "pathways" and a specialized technology system.

Another of our affiliates, the Physicians CareConnection (PCC), utilizes the HUB daily, to better serve Central Ohio's vulnerable population.

By providing this innovative model to the community, HCGC continues its mission to increase optimal health for all in our region by proactively addressing social determinants of health and increase health equity in Central Ohio.
