2012 Safety Net ACOs: Barriers and Benefits
Warren Institute: Health, Economic & Family Security Program
UC Berkeley School of Public Health
The purpose of our conference was to explore current developments in coordinated care in California's safety net. At this event, we reported on the results of a study on safety net accountable care organizations (ACOs) funded by Blue Shield of California Foundation. We also discussed emerging models of how ACOs might work in the safety net, and how legislatures can fuel care innovations by clearing legal barriers and creating incentives. The conference brought together providers, policymakers and other stakeholders for a productive, wide-ranging conversation.
