Expand your REACH: Building a health equity plan for ACO REACH and beyond
CMS recently announced that ACO REACH would replace the Direct Contracting model, accelerating the importance of health equity in the move to value-based care. The window of opportunity is closing — the deadline for applications for the first cohort of ACO Reach participants closes April 22, 2022.
Let’s get together for an in-depth discussion to explore strategies for success on the health equity component of ACO REACH.
One of the most exciting components of the newly announced ACO REACH model is the emphasis on health equity. With the application window fast approaching, your healthcare organization may be deciding whether to participate — and whether you can successfully develop and implement a health equity plan to improve care for underserved communities while measurably reducing health disparities.
Community Care Cooperative (C3) CEO Christina Severin has deep experience developing and managing models of care for Medicaid beneficiaries under many value-based care models, including the Direct Contracting Model that was just replaced by ACO REACH. She’ll be joined in conversation by Michael Meucci, chief operating officer at Arcadia, who has worked with Medicaid organizations around the country on health equity initiatives.
Together, Christina and Michael will cover:
- ACO REACH requirements for a health equity plan
- Foundational capabilities you will need
- Best practices to improve outcomes for historically underserved populations
- Strategies for extending your health equity plan across other payment models
