As states seek to improve quality of care and health outcomes while reducing costs, many have turned to accountable care models. One key aspect of accountable care models is that organizations or structures assume responsibility for the care and outcomes of a defined population across a continuum of care and across different parts of the health system. These models generally hold providers accountable through payments linked to value and performance measurement. This webinar will feature an overview of the opportunities in accountable care models for improving population health, as well as state examples. State officials will discuss the role of both health care financing and public health agencies; and how they are working with providers and community agencies to achieve the goals of accountable care models, particularly in improving health across whole populations.
