This chapter provided a brief review of the original formulation of the Pathways Community HUB model. This review set the context for the multiperspective modeling and simulation framework and its support of pathways-based care coordination. We then discussed the discrete event system specification (DEVS) formalization of pathways in more depth and showed how pathways serve as a basis for quality improvements in coordination of care. The DEVS formalization provides a firm basis for computerized support for monitoring, tracking, and reporting. This leads to improved client adherence to their assigned activities and improved coordination among the payers and agencies involved.
