ACO Innovation Awards

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2017

Notifications will be made no later than February 17.

For the Spring Conference, the Call for Innovations has been retooled as NAACOS ACO Innovation Awards.  NAACOS is soliciting submissions as we have done over the past six conferences and the submission process is very similar to what we have previously done.  The difference this time is only For the spring conference, three submissions will be chosen as the "Best Innovations.”  Those who are chosen will receive an award at the conference, the opportunity to present during a breakout session, and complementary registration. There will also be a table in the exhibit hall where the winners can meet up with conference attendees, who would like to hear more about the innovation. 

As usual, the Call for Innovations solicits submissions that showcase innovations that have helped ACOs with every day struggles. These sessions offer an opportunity to present and discuss something that could help others in the ACO community. The session and award presentation will be held during the NAACOS Spring 2017 Conference, April 5-7, 2017 at the Hilton Baltimore.

Did you figure out a great way of segmenting your population?

What are your care management keys to success?

Do you have any unique partnership models that are helping you achieve a goal? Perhaps you figured out a great distribution model for your savings. 

These are just a few examples of the types of innovations we are looking for. Here are a few examples of previous winners. 

Each selected ACO will have a 20-minute presentation to describe who they are, what challenge they faced, and what their solution was. The rest of the 90-minute breakout session will be Q&A among the audience and the presenters. The submitter is the assumed presenter and only one person may present although others may be present during the session to assist with the Q&A.

All innovations must be submitted by employees of ACOs. Vendors/Partners are not eligible to submit.
