Update on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation

The Affordable Care Act created the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to explore new and better ways of delivering health care to publicly insured patients and new and better ways of paying for that care.  Now in operation for a year, the Innovation Center had divided itself into different functional components – patient care, community improvement, Medicare demonstrations, and others – and is funding demonstration programs designed to test new ways of delivering and paying for care.

With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Urban Institute has prepared a summary and analysis of the Innovation Center’s mandate, internal organization, approach to it work, and early activities.  Both the full report and a summary of it can be found hereHealth Care Reform/Flag, on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s web site.
