Health navigation and clinical services
The Health Navigation (HN), formerly Patient/Health Navigation, and Clinical Services (CS) strategies are also known as the Women’s Wellness Connection or WWC.
The Health Navigation strategy is an interpersonal-level approach. This strategy:
- Funds navigation of eligible, low-income women* into timely and complete breast and cervical cancer screening services.
- Reduces disparities by helping eligible, low-income women overcome barriers.
*Organizations must have CDPHE approval for the group(s) of women (insured vs. uninsured/underinsured) for which Health Navigation services will be provided through their Cancer Prevention and Early Detection contract.
The Clinical Services strategy is an individual-level approach. This strategy:
Funds breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic procedures for eligible low-income, uninsured or underinsured women.
Reduces disparities by reducing out-of-pocket costs of screening for eligible low-income, uninsured or underinsured women.
*The Clinical Services Strategy for eligible uninsured or underinsured women cannot be implemented without also implementing the Health Navigation strategy for this same group of women. These combined strategies are referred to as the Health Navigation with Clinical Services strategy.
Strategy start-up activities to be completed by organizations adding the Health Navigation and Clinical Services strategies.
