Housing, transportation, and food: how ACOs seek to improve population health by addressing nonmedical needs of patients.
The authors examined how accountable care organizations (ACOs) addressed the nonmedical needs of their patients. They found that ACOs most commonly addressed the need for transportation, housing, and food insecurity, which they identified through the primary care visit or care transformation programs. They concluded that their findings offer insights into how health care organizations such as ACOs integrate themselves with nonmedical organizations.
