A4H will focus on areas where adoption can be accelerated, such as traditional Medicare and Medicaid, including dual eligibles, as well as employers. This work improves access to whole-person care for complex populations, including behavioral health and social support services. Our work in this area will define effective accountable care, identify current prevalence of accountable care, and develop policies to accelerate its adoption and spread.
We will also identify opportunities to match people to the right programs and providers for their health care needs. Accountable for Health’s work will build on accountable care models with an established track record that have demonstrated success and will identify consensus and priority areas for scaling effective models. This work also includes reviewing fee-for-service restrictions on providers and eliminating requirements that may be unnecessary in an accountable care environment.
We will also demonstrate how accountable care rewards innovation in care delivery, as compared to traditional FFS which does not reward clinicians for investing in the data infrastructure and team-based care model necessary for proactive care management and population health.”
