The LAN Welcomes United States of Care to the Accountable Care Action Collaborative

Washington, D.C., February 13, 2024

The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) welcomes Natalie Davis, CEO of United States of Care (USofCare), to the Accountable Care Action Collaborative (ACAC). As an ACAC member representative, Davis will join other industry leaders to advance the ACAC’s goal of transforming the accountable care landscape beyond payment reform and increase collaboration and alignment across key stakeholder groups.

USofCare joins a group of participating ACAC organizations representing patients, providers, specialty care providers, payers, and local communities whose organizational goals support the LAN. ACAC members are industry leaders who work with the LAN to advance accountable care. The LAN defines “accountable care” as care that centers on the patient and aligns their care team to support shared decision-making.

Davis’ extensive health care leadership experience and commitment to bringing stakeholders together to catalyze change make her well suited to contribute to the ACAC. Davis has worked for nearly two decades shaping and implementing American health care policies to improve the lives of all people. As CEO of United States of Care, she has shaped a people-centered approach to drive policy change.

“I am pleased to welcome United States of Care and Natalie Davis to the Accountable Care Action Collaborative. Natalie’s person-centered approach to healthcare and track record of building strong partnerships will advance the ACAC’s work,” said ACAC co-chair Leah Binder, president and CEO of the LeapFrog Group.

“United States of Care is incredibly proud to join the ACAC and help support efforts to advance payment reform that puts people first and centers their needs,” said Natalie Davis, CEO and co-founder of United States of Care. “United States of Care prides itself on our ability to bring together voices and build a forum for collaboration. As a member of the ACAC, I’m looking forward to partnering with leaders across the health care ecosystem.”

The ACAC helps create a movement that promotes efforts to advance accountable care by coordinating with other LAN initiatives and activities and fostering partnerships to facilitate large-scale application of findings and best practices.
