Community Health Workers (CHWs)
MGH strives to advance health equity, improve health outcomes, and promote well-being of our primary care patients by addressing health-related social needs, system navigation, and care coordination as standard of care. Community Health Workers (CHWs) are an integral part of achieving these goals. CHWs are trusted members of the community who help patients improve access and coordinate their health care. CHWs have the skills and experience to understand their patients’ circumstances. By building trusting relationships and walking alongside their patients, CHWs help address medical and psychosocial needs in order to promote self-efficacy, help patients meet their goals, and improve health outcomes.
