ACO REACH: Advancing Equity and Optimizing Performance
CMS replaced the Global and Professional Direct Contracting (GPDC) Model with the redesigned ACO Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (REACH) Model in 2023. ACO REACH is the first accountable care model to directly address health equity and access to care, with a specific directive to meet the needs of patients from marginalized and underserved communities.
Whether you are participating in ACO REACH, the model provides vital insights into the future of value-based care and care collaboration. This panel will discuss the incentives and requirements laid out by the new ACO REACH model and how organizations can develop action plans to identify differences or disparities in their members’ health status.
Panelists: Gary Jacobs, Executive Director, Center for Government Relations and Public Policy, VillageMD; Kate Casaday, MPH, Director of Market Operations, CareMount Health Solutions; Ashley Perry, MPH, Chief Solutions Officer, Socially Determined
