Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are healthcare organizations - including doctors and hospitals - who work together to provide better, instead of more, healthcare. Recently, this partnership between different healthcare organizations has become more popular.
In late 2015, two of the biggest organizations providing research and training to ACOs merged and created the most comprehensive source of accountable care information. Brick Factory worked with this new organization, the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC), to develop their website.
The ACLC website was built using component-based design powered by the Stacks Drupal module. Component-based design subdivides a website design system into smaller parts called components that can then be used together to form an actual website page.
On the back end, administrators pick and choose which components make up a given page. Components that were designed for ACLC include Page Header, Email Sign Up, Pull Quote and News Feed. This component-based approach gives ACLC administrators the power to quickly and easily build beautiful and complex new web pages in minutes.
ACLC is a membership-based organization so a key goal of the website was to develop a members-only hub of resources, events, and more.
ACLC offers different levels of membership based on an organization’s needs. The members only section is configured so that the four different membership levels have access to different content.
One of the benefits of ACLC membership is access to their ACO database. This is a resource that provides information about ACOs across the country - from the organization’s leadership to their coverage area. Members can use this information to connect with each other.
