Dr. Patrick Conway wears a lot of hats at the CMS, most recently becoming acting principal deputy administrator under acting Administrator Andy Slavitt. He’s also the chief medical officer and director of the CMS Innovation Center, the learning lab for payment and delivery reforms launched under the Affordable Care Act. The Obama administration’s push to transform the healthcare system is yielding significant results, he says, even though some providers have struggled as the agency tinkers with the frameworks and benchmarks of its new models.
