adviseRx was an optional, no-fee technical assistance opportunity exclusively for HPC-certified ACOs, which aimed to support the delivery of high-quality, high-value care through evidence-based prescribing practices. The program operated from 2019-2020 and focused on type 2 diabetes management. To offer this program, the HPC partnered with Alosa Health, a nationally recognized leader in developing and implementing clinical educational programs about evidence-based prescribing.

Participating ACO staff (“ACO Educators”) received training in conducting peer-to-peer education to review current, evidence-based materials with prescribers in their own ACOs with supervision from Alosa Health educators. The ACO Educators participated in: independent study review of clinical trials and literature collected into learning modules by Alosa Health; webinars led by clinical experts; and an in-person training focused on the key skills needed to successfully complete each aspect of an educational visit. ACO Educators completed 104 educational visits within their ACOs in early 2020.

Three ACOs participated in adviseRx:

  • Beth Israel Lahey Health Performance Network
  • Cambridge Health Alliance
  • Signature Healthcare
