Annotation

Covered in this webinar are the roles of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in population health and how they integrate with community-based systems of care, including public health agencies, on a range of issues, such as care coordination and other MCH community services. The webinar presentations by an ACO provider, Medicaid staff, and Title V MCH and CYSHCN Directors highlight key considerations for maternal and child health populations, the role of public health in ACO implementation, and efforts to implement ACOs that have a focus on pediatric populations (particularly CSHCN).

Learning Objectives

• Increase knowledge of ACOs and ACOs that include MCH populations.

• Increase understanding of how public health can play a role in ACOs.

• Identify strategies and resources to collaborate with ACOs.
