Accountable Care Partnerships

Objective

To provide capability-building support to organisations in North West London (NWL) planning to become new Accountable Care Partnerships.

This means:

  • Developing partner organisations’ capability to move towards ACP care model
  • Providing formal and informal learning opportunities to discuss and exchange ACP development
  • Supporting the development of national system enablers which foster ACP model
  • Facilitating the integration of academia into health payer / provider system

 

Context

One particular structural reform that has been advocated is to align incentives across care providers better and move towards a stronger outcomes focus through Accountable Care Partnership (ACP) models.

This programme will be delivered jointly by ICHP and UCLP.
