Task Force on Accountable Care Communities

Accountable care communities (ACCs) are an emerging promising model for addressing the social, behavioral, and economic factors that impact health outcomes and health care cost. The NCIOM Task Force on Accountable Care Communities will develop evidence-based and actionable recommendations for state and local policies to support the development of ACCs and guidelines that will help communities create or expand ACCs.

Description

Individuals’ health outcomes often have more to do with the conditions in which they live, learn, work, and age than the medical care they receive. However, traditional health care is not designed to address the social, behavioral, and economic factors (e.g., housing, transportation, access to healthy food, education, and health behaviors) that impact health outcomes. Accountable care communities (ACCs) are an emerging promising model for addressing the social, behavioral, and economic factors that impact health outcomes and health care cost. ACCs address health from a community perspective, pulling multiple cross-sector stakeholders together in a coalition that shares responsibility for addressing multiple determinants of health.

The NCIOM Task Force on Accountable Care Communities will meet approximately 10 times throughout 2018 to develop evidence-based and actionable recommendations for state and local policies to support the development of accountable care communities and guidelines that will help communities create or expand Accountable Care Communities.
