ACO Learning Collaborative:

Addressing Social Determinants of Health

The Institute for Accountable Care and NAACOS are offering a new opportunity for ACOs that are interested in developing and implementing strategies to address Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) to participate in an ACO-led learning collaborative. The collaborative will emphasize peer interaction and shared learning. Participants should be prepared to contribute as well as learn.

The collaborative will begin with an in-person kick-off meeting on Wednesday September 29, 2021, and it will be co-located with the NAACOS Fall conference in Washington, DC. The kick-off meeting will be followed by seven monthly virtual meetings.

If you have questions about the collaborative please contact us at [email protected].

The initial plan for the learning collaborative curriculum is outlined below. The curriculum is subject to change based on the capabilities and interests of the learning collaborative participants.
