It also calls for incentivizing prevention and public health measures and challenging physicians to work more closely with community organizations to improve health. A panel discussion followed the release of the report, at which Dr. Darshak Sanghavi, director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s preventive and population health models group, highlighted a new CMS initiative that will do some of what the BPC’s paper called for.
