With U.S. health care expenditures projected to double by 2035, reforming payment and delivery systems is essential to reining in costs and achieving higher-value care. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMI)—created by the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—has the potential to accelerate, optimize and speed health care payment and delivery innovation.
On October 18, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings hosted a forum focused on key themes for accelerating health care innovation, including the importance of strategic public and private collaboration and alignment of investments to effect system-wide improvements in payment and delivery. Following keynote remarks by Donald Berwick, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, experts discussed methods to spur rapid identification, execution and evaluation of promising payment and delivery reform models, as well as issues surrounding CMI implementation.
