The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has released a report updating the status of Minnesota's 15 Accountable Communities for Health (ACH) as they strive to improve health across the state.
Accountable Communities for Health meet the clinical and social needs of a population through community partnerships and person-centered, coordinated care across a range of providers. Minnesota is evaluating whether the model of care providers and communities working together results in improvements in quality, cost, and experience of care. About $5.6 million, or 14 percent, of Minnesota's State Innovation Model funds are dedicated to 15 ACH grant projects.
The report, Advancing Health Equity (PDF)"Accountable Communities for Health: Perspectives on Grant Projects and Future Considerations", includes the following highlights:
•An overview of the Accountable Community for Health model
•A summary of successes and challenges as the efforts completed more than half of their 2-year funding cycle
•Examination of similar approaches in at least four other states, and
•Recommendations and considerations for developing the model in the future
