ACO Learning Collaborative:

Addressing Social Determinants of Health

The Institute for Accountable Care and NAACOS are supporting fourteen ACOs through a learning collaborative focusing on developing and implementing strategies to address Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). The collaborative is organized around seven specific content areas that are described below. Presentations and supporting materials for each session will be made available below.

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