Accountable Care Communities in Rural: Laying the Groundwork in Humboldt County, California
Describes how Accountable Care Communities (ACCs) employ a unified approach to improving the health of a population and reducing costs, by emphasizing preventive health and wellness efforts, as well as promoting collaboration among community-based organizations, social services, and the local health care system. Examines the ways in which the ACC model may help rural communities face challenges associated with poorer health outcomes, transportation difficulties, and shortages of healthcare providers.
