This resource is a toolkit highlighting innovative care coordination strategies used by Medicare ACOs.
- ACOs use a variety of methods to coordinate and manage the care of their populations, including both system-wide initiatives and targeted interventions.
- This toolkit explains how ACOs coordinate care for the following categories of beneficiaries: those who receive emergent care in the emergency department (ED); those who require treatment in a skilled nursing facility; those who have recently been discharged home after a hospital or ED visit; those who have been diagnosed with a chronic condition; and those who have conditions affected by the social determinants of health.
- This toolkit describes ACO strategies to enhance collaboration with post-acute care providers, facilitate information-sharing between clinicians, and leverage community resources for beneficiaries with complex needs.
