A development guide for competency implementation

August 15, 2017 – Charlotte, North Carolina

The Accountable Care Atlas is the ACLC’s latest public resource intended to help the provider community identify and prioritize the care delivery competencies necessary for success under risk-based payment. While industry experts agree that value-based payment is the most promising path forward, there is significant uncertainty around how to achieve success under these new value-based models of care delivery. Not only do provider leaders struggle to know what changes must be made, but they need help knowing where to begin. Provider organizations must allocate their limited resources in a manner that aligns with their long-term value-based objectives, while increasing their likelihood of short-term success and this requires that they gain the necessary competencies.

The Accountable Care Atlas is a public resource intended to serve all providers in their transitions to value. The Atlas is not specific to any payment model or provider type. In future iterations, the ACLC may develop more targeted versions of the tool.

The Atlas provides a recommended general sequencing for value-based delivery changes. It is not a prescriptive guide! Provider organizations should use the Atlas to identify their current position on the path to value, plan next steps, and even recognize areas that may have been overlooked, all while also considering their unique circumstances and needs. The Atlas was designed to be detailed enough to be actionable, but simple enough to be customizable. Allēus Health Analytics is proud to have contributed to the development of specific competencies within the Atlas.

The Atlas is complemented by the Value Based Readiness Assessment, a tool to help provider leaders gain insights into their organization’s ability to transition to value-based payments.

About the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative

The Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC) will accelerate the transition to accountable care by identifying the care delivery competencies needed for providers to succeed in risk-bearing payment models. As the accountable care movement progresses, organizations are transitioning from “what to do” to “how to do it.” The ACLC brings together the top performers in accountable care and industry leaders who know what it takes to succeed.

In collaborative forums, members contribute their understanding and experience in the real world of accountable care implementation. Members participate in identifying, defining, and creating a framework of the competencies all risk-bearing entities need to succeed.

The formation of the ACLC was accelerated by its affiliation with the former Brooking’s ACO Learning Network, which for over six years provided workshops, intelligence and networking to providers and other industry organizations. Members of the Learning Network have joined the ACLC to continue advancing to the ACLC’s new mission.
