The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation has updated its strategy for person-centered innovation.
The Innovation Center’s new strategy document, “Person-Centered Innovation – An Update on the Implementation of the CMS Innovation Center’s Strategy,” outlines steps the agency hopes will foster greater coordination and cooperation between primary care providers and medical specialists through the introduction and refinement of new payment models.
The new document outlines five strategic objectives:
- drive accountable care
- advance health equity
- support innovation
- address affordability
- partner to achieve system transformation
In support of these objectives, the Innovation Center describes recent accomplishments – most them process measures rather than outcomes – and charts paths for future actions, including metrics for measuring progress.
The new strategy document comes just 13 months after the agency’s white paper “Innovation Center Strategy Refresh.”
