Leaders in the US and England are working to achieve the Triple Aim by implementing new policy paradigms to increase quality of care, curb costs, and improve population health. Both countries have adopted similar approaches, with England seeking to support the development of organizations similar to accountable care models in the United States.

A research team from Duke-Margolis and the Duke GHIC is working with the Health Foundation to identify the key accountable care strategies and opportunity areas for improvements in policies to support care transformation activities occurring in England. Through interviews with healthcare organizations piloting innovative reforms and key NHS policymakers, we extract a set of organizational best practices that exemplify particular principles of accountable care and use these analyses to synthesize a series of policy recommendations to accelerate progress around accountable care in England.

The findings will be showcased as a working paper in a private roundtable in London that convenes key health care stakeholders across England to increase the local understanding of what accountable care is, showcase how accountable care can help achieve population health goals and system efficiencies, and identify how health providers are adapting and advancing accountable care principles.
