Maximize the Impact of MassHealth Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)
MassHealth has made a commitment to address health-related social needs in their ACO program through screenings, referrals, and services. ACHI promotes strong relationships between ACOs and community-based organizations; and promotes data transparency regarding social needs, interventions, and outcomes so that advocates can identify what’s working and what needs to be improved.
Better Align Hospital Investments with Community Needs
ACHI advocates for changes in how hospitals invest in communities, such as through community benefits, so that these investments have a greater impact on social determinants, are more transparent to the community, and are driven by community-identified needs.
Partner with Health Care to Advance Affordable Housing Policy
ACHI partners with hospitals and other health sector leaders to use its combined political clout to advance state legislation that improves access to healthy, affordable housing options for all Massachusetts residents.
