Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is incorporating medical students and other health-profession learners into care-coordination teams of the Robert Wood Johnson Partners Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in order to augment care for patients with multiple chronic conditions and to maximize integrated care delivery in the home setting.
By learning about health systems science in a real-world ACO, these future physicians will be better able to address the goals of the Triple Aim—improving the patient experience of care, improving population health and reducing per capita costs of health care.
