As part of our ongoing mission to provide the most up-to-date information on health care reform and the many issues our customers face, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), we have engaged The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice (TDI), a preeminent research and educational institution dedicated to improving health care through education, research, policy reform, leadership improvement, and communication with patients and the public.
Due to Amerinet’s unique collaboration with TDI, the following resources are available to help you with ACO implementation:
Online Professional Education Programs
TDI offers online continuing education courses for working health care professionals in the core competencies of patient-centered, high-value health care. Courses are intended for a variety of disciplines—from clinicians and managers to operations and administrative workforces. Many TDI courses can also be customized for your specific organization or department and delivered through onsite or online training or a hybrid structure of both.
Visit www.tdiprofessionaleducation.org to view the upcoming course schedule or email email@example.com for more information.
ACO Learning Network
The Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings and TDI created the ACO Learning Network: a member-driven network that provides participating organizations the tools necessary to implement successful ACOs. Lead by Dr. Mark McClellan and Elliott Fisher, Brookings and Dartmouth have been working together since 2007 to foster the adoption of ACOs that will improve care quality and bend the cost curve.

Covering key topics in six parts, the ACO Toolkit provides a path forward for the implementation of ACOs across the country. The Toolkit strives to be both specific enough to allow organizations to clearly understand the steps needed to become an ACO, and stay broad enough to make sure the path put forward for implementation is possible for a diverse range of health care provider groups.
