Medical Home/ACO SIG Community


The mission of the Medical Home/ACO SIG is to facilitate a network of practitioners, administrators, and educators who share an interest in the development, implementation, and dissemination of information regarding new models for patient care, specifically the patient-centered medical home and accountable care organizations (ACOs).


The Medical Home/ACO SIG aims to provide a professional community of pharmacists who are involved in all aspects of patient-centered care, from the provision of care through the medical home to administration and payment of that care in the ACO model. This may include those who are developing medical home/ACO related pharmacy services, teaching students and/or residents about medical home and ACOs, investigating reimbursement opportunities and performing research within a medical home/ACO.
