Medicaid Accountable Care Organizations: A Fancy New Care Model Tries to Improve Health

Thursday, May 17, 2018: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Lakeshore A (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
ACOs are the new kids on the block when it comes to health reform, and more states (or local jurisdictions) are using them to manage cost and improve health outcomes. ACOs also can better incorporate social determinants of health (to include housing) into funding, service structure, and outcome goals. This session will feature two HCH projects at different stages of ACO implementation. We’ll walk through what works well, some lessons learned, and how you might replicate the best of an ACO model to help pay for care coordination, housing navigation, and other vital support services.
