SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC) released a series of 20 Case Study Briefs (CSBs) as part of its latest initiative to help providers identify and implement the care delivery competencies necessary to succeed under risk-based payment. In September 2016, the ACLC released its first iteration of recommended competencies along with a "Call to Collaborative Action," petitioning health care organizations to actively engage in sharing solutions. Today's announcement uses that work as a foundational framework for targeted, tactical learning.
Each CSB describes one provider organization's approach to successfully implementing a single competency, including solutions, tools and vendor partners used, challenges with implementation, and results to date. These concise accounts will give provider leaders the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others in the industry. Over time, the ACLC will develop a robust library of standardized CSBs with a myriad of competency-specific and comparable industry solutions across a variety of provider types, markets, and maturity levels. These documents will be open to the public and updated regularly.
"With this program, we intend to give provider organizations what they need most during this uncertain time – digestible, real-world examples to support informed decision-making. Though we're in the early stages of care delivery reform, we believe that by identifying the essential competencies, and developing tools for making those competencies actionable, the ACLC can support the growth and sustainability of the accountable care movement," said Governor Mike Leavitt, Founder and Chairman of Leavitt Partners and Co-chair of the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative.
"Using real-world examples like these is fundamental to competency-based learning," said WGU President Scott D. Pulsipher. "As we continue to develop the ACLC, we look forward to the addition of more learning resources like these, which will support the growth of the accountable care movement."
