OneCare is Vermont’s local, 501(c)(3) accountable care organization (ACO), partnering with health care providers to transform the state’s health care system. By managing network performance, giving health care providers actionable data and analytics, and providing payments in a structure that incentivizes quality of care and improved population health, OneCare supports participating organizations in their work to deliver excellent health care to Vermonters. Through this partnership, OneCare moves Vermont toward a trusted, equitable health care system where patients and providers work together to achieve optimal health and an exceptional care experience.
Organization's Approach to Diversity, Equity, Belonging, & Inclusion
We are committed to representing the diversity of consumers served by the ACO, taking into account demographic and non-demographic factors, including gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographic region, medical diagnoses, and services utilized.
OneCare board and committee members receive DEI training. All new managers receive an orientation and can be paired with a current board member to create a smoother onboarding period. The board has approved a DEI focused workplan for the organization and for its governance and receives quarterly updates on that work.
OneCare has also surveyed board and committee members to identify areas of opportunity to improve representation. Recruitment policies include a commitment to seeking diverse representation. Focus groups were also held to learn more from Vermont health care consumers.
