Accountable Community for Health

This effort will seek to align programs and strategies related to integrated care and services for individuals and community-wide prevention efforts to improve health outcomes within a geographic community. The first phase of this work focused on research to further define the Accountable Communities for Health (ACH) model and identify core elements. The second phase of Vermont’s Accountable Communities for Health work will bring together multi-disciplinary teams from communities across the state to further explore how this model might be implemented and develop community capacity; this effort will be known as the ACH Peer Learning Lab. The ACH Peer Learning Lab seeks to support participating communities in increasing their capacity and readiness across the nine core elements of the ACH model through a curriculum that utilizes in-person and distance learning methods to support peer learning, as well as community facilitation to support each community’s development; the project will result in a report that documents findings and lessons learned, and includes recommendations to inform future State decision-making, focusing on what infrastructure and resources are needed at the community/regional level and the State level.
