The Accountable Care Atlas is the ACLC’s seminal resource intended to help the health care industry identify and prioritize the care delivery competencies necessary for success under risk-based payment. The Accountable Care Atlas is a culmination of the work of the ACLC members, organizing more than 160 competencies in context for implementation.
While industry experts agree that value-based payment is the most promising path forward, there is significant uncertainty around how to achieve success under these new models. Not only do provider leaders struggle to know what changes must be made, but they need help knowing where to begin. Provider organizations must allocate their limited resources in a manner that aligns with their long-term value-based objectives, while increasing their likelihood of short-term success and sustainability.
The Accountable Care Atlas is a public resource intended to serve all providers in their transitions to value. The Atlas is not specific to any payment model or provider type. In future iterations, the ACLC may develop more targeted versions of the tool.
The Atlas provides a recommended general sequencing for value-based delivery changes. It is not a prescriptive guide! Provider organizations should use the Atlas to identify their current position on the path to value, plan next steps, and even recognize areas that may have been overlooked, all while also considering their unique circumstances and needs. The Atlas was designed to be detailed enough to be actionable, but simple enough to be customizable.
The Atlas is complemented by the Value Based Readiness Assessment, a tool to help provider leaders gain insights into their organization’s ability to transition to value-based payments.
