Drs. Berwick & Gilfilan detailed three updates to the NPRM, including the issuance of a 'request for information' (RFA) on the 'Pioneer Model', designed to fast-track mature IDN's entry into ACO certification, a request for comment on the 'idea of an Advance Payment ACO Model' and the Innovation Center will offer new, free Accelerated Development Learning Sessions to teach providers interested in becoming ACOs what steps they can take to improve care delivery and how to develop an action plan for moving toward providing better coordinated care. Four Accelerated Development Learning Sessions will be held in 2011, with the first session scheduled for June 20-22, 2011 in Minneapolis, MN.'
