The Community Health Hub (CHH) model provides integrated resources from DHHS to be passed down to local communities to build capacity within local health departments to increase preventive screening in adults.
Local health departments collaboratively work with community level partners and DHHS to assess the needs of the community and priority populations around preventive screening with emphasis on breast, cervical, and colon cancer, uncontrolled hypertension and obesity. Through community partnership and engagement, pathways to care are developed with implementation of evidence based interventions. Outcomes are meant to improve access to high-quality preventive screening services, enhance community linkages and strengthen data collection and utilization that impact quality of life and health outcomes for Nebraska residents.
