With the end of the year upon us, I want to wish each of you a wonderful holiday season, whichever holiday you may observe. For many of us, this is a time for celebrating, being with those we love and reflecting on the major accomplishments of the past year. It’s also a time to look forward to the adventures in the New Year, both personal and professional.

At ACA, we have much to be proud of and much to be excited about going into 2019: 

  • The organization now employs more than 300 people and we look forward to welcoming another 700+ within the next six months!

  • In addition to the continued onboarding of affiliated Care Management teams, we’ve started hiring the clinical talent who will reinforce your efforts to provide more holistic coordination and supports to the people enrolled with us.

  • We’ve made significant progress in assuring service delivery and timely documentation. While some challenges remain, MediSked is more stable, user-friendly and familiar to all—a trend we expect to continue into next year.

  • We've begun working with designers to launch a new website, which will be welcome news for many! As the project advances, we will update you and give early previews, if possible.

  • We continue to develop regional “hub” sites to supplement the space secured from transitioning agencies. A strong local presence benefits the people we support as well as current and future staff, anchoring ACA in the community and providing more options in terms of physical space.

  • We also look forward to sharing updates in 2019 about the final managed care requirements (SIP-PL) and how ACA will be positioned in that process.

Lastly, I hope you are all able to take some time away from work to recharge. But before you do, please take a moment to think about the holidays from the perspective of those we support. Have you asked what they’d like to do (if anything) to celebrate? Are there any community holiday events they’d like to attend? Any winter treats or activities they’ve always wanted to try? Many people say this is their favorite time of year; let’s make sure ACA is doing everything we can to make it special for the communities we support.
