Join Prevention Institute and our co-sponsors for a February 25th web forum on The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s (CMMI) new Accountable Health Community Model (AHC) funding opportunity. The forum will focus on emerging opportunities for applicants and ways for grantees to leverage this funding to support population health.

In January, CMMI announced a $157 million grant to build alignment of clinical and community services at the local level. The AHC model acknowledges the need to address underlying social determinants of health and equity and emphasizes clinical-community partnerships. The new funding will support up to 44 communities to screen patients for health-related social needs and connect them to community services.  

PI’s Leslie Mikkelsen will give a keynote on current efforts and trends on models pursuing population health transformation before leading panelists in a moderated discussion on multi-sector efforts underway across the country in which healthcare organizations and communities have successfully joined together to advance health equity by linking clinical and community services; screening for social needs and connecting patients to community services; managing multi-sector coalitions; and collecting and evaluating data.

Speakers include:

•    Leslie Mikkelsen, MPH, RD, Managing Director, Prevention Institute
•    Heidi Haney Favet, Care Team Leader, Essentia Health, Ely, MN
•    Donna Skoda, Commissioner, Summit County Public Health
•    James Hardy, Deputy Mayor for Administration & Chief of Staff for
the City of Akron, OH
•    Matthew Marsom, Vice President, Public Policy and Programs, Public Health Institute

Accountable Health Communities FOA:

Eligible applicants may include community-based organizations, individual and group healthcare practices, hospitals and health systems, institutions of higher education, local government entities, tribal organizations, and for-profit and not-for-profit local and national entities, or a consortium of partners.  Applications are due on March 31, 2016.
