Learning Labs

Learning Labs are a new educational activity for members designed to provide a deep dive into fundamental strategies in accountable care and to foster exchange among peers with frontline experience. These interactive '"labs" will include expert presentations, experiences from member ACOs, brainstorming activities, and peer-led collaborations. NAACOS will be an active partner in these Learning Labs to understand what additional resources and tools members need to work through various administrative, operational, and transformational processes. 

Annual Wellness Visits 

Annual Wellness Visits (AWVs) are an ongoing opportunity for ACOs to engage participates, plan their care, and increase quality scores in the process.  Starting October 19, 2023, we will be holding monthly Learning Lab sessions on the third Thursday of each month from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm with topics focus around AWVs. 

Topics to be covered over the six-session event include:  

  • AWV basics including guidelines for and billing options by facility type
  • Structuring your EHR including Screening tools
  • Engaging clinicians, staffing AWVs
  • Operationalizing workflows to support clinic models
  • Engaging patients, building an actionable plan, addressing social drivers of health
  • AWVs for geriatric patients – advanced directives and other activities to enhance the clinical value of the AWV  

Please sign-up for the AVW Learning Lab series! 

If a representative from your ACO has expertise to present or would like to take a more active role in either of the learning labs, please reach out to Melody Danko-Holsomback, VP of Education, [email protected].
