Accountable Care Action Collaborative
The Accountable Care Action Collaborative aims to transform the accountable care landscape beyond payment reform and increase collaboration and alignment across key stakeholder groups. The ACAC is a strategic initiative of the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network. LAN’s mission is to “advance multi stakeholder payment reforms to enable coordinated health care that achieves better health, equity and affordability.”
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is a member of the ACAC, working with other ACAC members to accelerate the adoption of accountable care to improve people’s experience in the health care system, produce better health outcomes and lower costs. Key components of the ACAC include creating a movement that promotes efforts to advance accountable care; coordinating with and leveraging other LAN initiatives and activities; and fostering partnerships to facilitate large-scale application of findings and best practices.
The LAN defines “accountable care” as care that centers on the patient and aligns their care team to support shared decision-making. This helps to realize the best achievable health outcomes for all through equitable, comprehensive, high-quality, affordable, longitudinal care.
About the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN)The LAN started in 2015 and is an active group of public and private health care leaders dedicated to providing thought leadership, strategic direction and ongoing support to accelerate their care system’s adoption of alternative payment models (APMs). The LAN mobilizes payers, providers, purchasers, patients, product manufacturers, policymakers and others in a shared mission to lower care costs, improve patient experiences and outcomes, reduce the barriers to APM participation, and promote shared accountability.
