ccountable Care Organizations (ACO) are proliferating in the United States, but providing pastoral care in such a setting is new and untried. This workshop will describe the model that MissionPoint Health Partners, an ACO, has created to provide pastoral care to its members. The presenter will discuss the creation of the pastoral care program, common issues that arise in providing holistic outpatient spiritual care, and the ongoing collaboration between the hospital and ACO chaplaincy departments. We will also discuss different methods of providing pastoral care at a distance to diverse populations.

Learning Objectives

Describe methods and examples of providing pastoral care in an Accountable Care Organization.
Provide examples of successes and challenges of providing outpatient pastoral care.
Explore the similarities and differences between pastoral care for inpatients and outpatients.
