12:00 pm Central
The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Accountable Health Communities (AHC) pilot program presents health care providers with a groundbreaking opportunity to drive critical social needs interventions to connect patients with the resources they need to be healthy.

Through the AHC program, CMMI will test the extent to which connecting patients to social resources improves health care outcomes and reduces costs. AHC grants will be awarded to up to 44 geographically dispersed providers in amounts ranging from $1 million to $4.5 million over 5 years. AHC program applications are due by March 31st.

Foley & Lardner LLP and Health Leads are co-hosting this timely webinar to offer insights into this AHC model and core components of a comprehensive and sustainable strategy to start or expand a social needs program. This webinar is particularly relevant to population health executives, community health leaders, managed care executives, Medicaid directors and quality improvement managers. Scheduled for Thursday, February 18 at 12:00 pm CT, the webinar will cover:

  • The importance of the AHC model and its potential impact on both patient care and the sector at large;
  • Key requirements for a successful and sustainable social needs strategy, including screening and referrals, workforce requirements and technology considerations;
  • Examples of successful social needs programs in progress at leading health care delivery organizations.
