Creating a Culture of Change: Accountable Care Collaborative 2014 Annual Report

When the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) launched in 2011, the Department’s goal was not to simply deliver health care, but to improve the health of Medicaid clients. Many factors contribute to health: personal health behaviors, access to medical care, good provider-patient communication, a connected health system and access to resources to meet basic needs. 

The ACC is designed to make incremental change on all of these fronts. It provides all the usual benefits of Medicaid with added supports to ensure that members get the right care at the right time in the right place. The ACC also takes wellness and nonmedical needs into consideration, helping members overcome obstacles that have little to do with health care but everything to do with overall health.
