Meet the Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOS)

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

I just finished chatting with the instigator of the Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOS). Nicole Bradberry, CEO.

ACOwatch: This Week in Accountable CareNicole’s story in part tracks back to the first meeting of the National Association of ACOs (NAACOS), where she got the idea to build a state level resource for identify and share best practices, drive needed education, define core member support services vs. re-invent the wheel, and establish criteria to assist in preferred vendor due diligence and screening purposes for Florida based ACOs. (NOTE: An excellent idea I might add since attempting to launch the ACO Alliance a while back).

Yet, this is a fast moving industry as I noted the ‘born on’ date for NAACOS in the earlier post: The National Association of ACOs Emerges. Listen to what Nicole has to say. As the first state iteration of an emerging national trend she’s got valuable insights, drive and advice for any of you considering the ACO journey, including the resources available from CMS.
