Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Training Site

Through completion of the eight modules on this site, learners can advance their knowledge of the history and adoption of ACOs as well as implications for patient engagement, primary and specialty care physicians, administration, and reimbursement.

The training site’s responsive modern design adapts the website to the learner’s device and allows for an optimal viewing experience across device types (e.g., smartphone, tablet, desktop). The training material is organized into topic-specific instructional modules, and each module includes a pre- and post-test as well as a video that explains and synthesizes more complex concepts. Modules can be taken in any order, but a pre-test must be completed before the learner can access each module’s content. Content that the learner missed in the pre-test is highlighted in the left navigation of the module to indicate where additional review is suggested. With the My Progress dashboard the learner can easily keep track of his/her progress, can view detailed test results for completed modules, and can view or print the transcript. Reports summarizing learner progress are available for organizations that purchase accounts for groups of learners. A distinct account on the training site is created for each individual learner. The introduction video on the site’s home page provides a step-by-step demonstration of the site features.

The Ohio Center of Excellence for Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response

The mission of the proposed Center of Excellence for the Study of High Consequence Event Preparedness and Response is to investigate the risks, vulnerabilities, and consequences of potential terrorist events employing weapons of mass destruction; to specifically examine the preparedness and response posture of the United States, identifying and redressing gaps in the technical understanding of the deterrence, detection, use, response and long-term recovery from such weapons by a program of focused research.   Research ranges from highly technical engineering (e.g., state-of-the-art sensor development) and modeling/simulation to practical qualitative measures of response-plan adequacy. The research program is tightly coupled with both broad-based and specialized education programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars.  The Center is a direct resource to the Department of Homeland Security, and in addition to research and education functions, provides independent assessments and expertise as requested.
