is now:
The rebrand from the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC) to
Institute for Advancing Health Value (IAHV) marks an evolution from a peer learning collaborative focused on accountable care to an Institute that is dedicated to leading the advancement of value and equity in health through education, collaboration, and workforce development. 

Educating and reskilling the workforce is central to the success of the value movement. The Institute is committed to advancing the knowledge and competency of the health industry, and our educational products, research, and peer learning collaborative accelerates industry readiness. We believe in the moral imperative for value-based care, and through our social impact, we are a force multiplier for population health and health equity.
-Eric Weaver, Executive Director, the Institute
