Do You Know About Access Tusc and Bridges to Wellness?

How much do you know about Access Tusc or Bridges to Wellness in Tuscarawas County. These resources are incredible, and this episode is definitely worth listening to so you understand what these resources offer for you.

Access Tusc was established as a healthcare/social service network in 2014 to assist patients with navigating the resources within Tuscarawas County. Using Community Health Workers to build rapport with patients/clients within their own home environment, and establish a plan of action surrounding ‘pathways’ that must be completed in order to move through their current state of need will connect services and clients.

There are 20 identified pathways according to the HUB model:

  1. Adult education

  3. Developmental referrals
  4. Developmental screening
  5. Education
  6. Employment
  7. Family planning
  8. Health insurance

  12. Medical home
  13. Medical referral
  14. Medication assessment chart
  15. Medication assessment
  16. Medication management
  17. Postpartum
  18. Pregnancy
  19. Smoking cessation
  20. Social service referral

CHW's will come meet a client wherever is comfortable to help get all women in need connected to the right services.

The Bridges to Wellness HUB program offers help to pregnant women on Medicaid who need help navigating the services in the county including transportation, health care coordination, dental, behavioral health services, education, and many more pathways brought to their home by a Community Health Worker. Our pilot program is 100% available to any women who are dealing with recent/current opiate addiction, regardless of their insurance.
