Last Thursday, CMS announced four free “accelerated development sessions” (ADSs).  CMS describes the ADSs as “providing executives with the opportunity to learn about core functions of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and ways to build their organization's capacity to succeed as an ACO. This 3-day, in-person ADS is to help new ACOs deliver better care and reduce costs. [CMS] invites all new or newly emerging ACOs to register a team of senior executives to participate.”

The first meeting will be held June 20th to June 22nd in Minneapolis.  The locations and dates of the other three meetings will be announced soon.  To register and for more information, please visit CMS's website for ACO ADSs
