ACO LEARNING COLLABORATIVE:

Home-Based Care for High-Need, High-Cost Patients

The Institute for Accountable Care and NAACOS supported twelve ACOs through a learning collaborative focusing on developing, implementing and enhancing home visit programs designed to improve care for high-need, high-cost patients. Participating ACOs worked on a diverse range of programs including Hospital at Home; Home-Based Primary Care; Care Transition Home Visits; Community Paramedicine and Community Volunteers. A major issue facing all participants was evaluating the financial implications of their home visit programs. To assist in this process, we developed a return-on-investment (ROI) calculator specifically designed for ACOs based on an extensive review of the literature to identify the range of potential savings achieved by prior programs.

The collaborative was made possible by the generous support of The Commonwealth FundThe SCAN FoundationThe Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the John A. Hartford Foundation.

Below we provide selected content from the collaborative from expert faculty and collaborative participants.
