CMS launches $840 million initiative to accelerate care transformation
Modern Healthcare

The CMS Innovation Center will spend $840 million in coming years to help doctors and hospitals do more to teach each other how to improve quality and cut wasteful practices.

The four-year effort is expected to include 150,000 clinicians working in networks where they will swap ideas, trade information and learn from others’ mistakes and successes. The investment is a gamble that sharing care-improvement experiences among medical groups, health systems and others will push the industry more rapidly toward more efficient models of care.
