The Innovation Center: How Much Can It Improve Quality and Reduce Costs – and How Quickly?
The new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) seeks to test new health care payment and service delivery models that can potentially enhance quality of care for beneficiaries while reducing costs. How is the agency planning to administer its $10 billion in funding? What early projects is the center undertaking? Is there private sector evidence that its goals can be achieved? What will happen to existing innovations now being rolled out by providers and hospitals? This briefing, sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund, addressed these and related questions.
