CMS Innovation Center releases strategy for the next decade

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center released a strategic plan this week to guide its health care payment and delivery models and priorities over the next decade. The plan focuses on five strategic objectives: drive accountable care, advance health equity, support innovation, address affordability, and partner to achieve system transformation. During a webinar on the strategy earlier this week, CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure said the center will work to improve communication with participants, including better data sharing and robust engagement with stakeholders.
