CMS launches center for innovation
Modern Healthcare

The CMS has officially established the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, which is intended to study ways of delivering care and paying providers that can save money for the Medicare and Medicaid programs and improve quality. Created in this year’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the center will consult healthcare stakeholders nationwide—including hospitals, physicians, consumers, payers, employers, states and federal agencies—to create partnerships and also receive feedback on its operations.
