ACO Roundtable: Gaining Traction from Accountable Care Innovations from Abroad


Working collaboratively with the Commonwealth Fund, a team led by Gerard Anderson at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) will use the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) to develop performance measures and contribute associated data elements to a new Fund report (scorecard, chartbook, or similar data products) describing health system performance for high need, high cost (HNHC) patients. This effort will build on a previous Fund small grant under which JHU used MEPS to define and describe the characteristics of the HNHC patient population. Dr. Anderson will also serve as an expert advisor in designing and developing this first report product to focus on health system performance for this population.

As countries around the world are beginning to implement accountable care payment reforms to promote changes in care delivery, there are increasing opportunities and benefits to foster cross-country learning for more effective implementation. To accelerate that learning, this project would expand the Commonwealth Fund’s reach and engage leaders of U.S. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in a roundtable that featured international models of accountable care for chronically illness populations. Leveraging the opportunity of the 6th Annual Accountable Care Organization Summit, to be held in Washington DC in June 2015, the roundtable would build on our prior work and reach U.S. provider audiences, who are critical to gaining traction for learning from global examples of accountable care. The focus of the roundtable would be to identify the most promising insights from abroad for U.S. ACOs and the most effective models and mechanisms for providing that evidence.
