We invite interested stakeholders to join a listening session in follow-up to the release of the CMS Innovation Center’s recently published Driving Health System Transformation - A Strategy for the CMS Innovation Center’s Second Decade (PDF). The listening session will be an opportunity for stakeholders to share with CMS leaders their perspectives on how to execute on the CMS Innovation Center’s strategic vision as it relates to the following three questions:
1. What is the greatest obstacle to participating in a CMS Innovation Center or other value-based, accountable care model, and how do you recommend the CMS Innovation Center alleviate this obstacle?
2. CMS is currently exploring quicker, more actionable data, learning collaboratives, and payment and regulatory flexibilities. What else could the CMS Innovation Center do to support clinicians and help them be successful in models?
3. How can CMMI better incorporate patient needs and goals into models? How should the impacts of value-based care on patients be measured?
IMPORTANT NOTE: Up to 15 stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide a 3-minute oral response to the listening session questions during this meeting. However, the CMS Innovation Center has reached its capacity for speaker requests for this session. Please still register to join the meeting in listen-mode.
Additionally, you may still provide written comments to the listening session questions during the event or via email at CMMIStrategy@cms.hhs.gov. Please include “LISTENING SESSION #1” in the subject line of the email. Some of the written comments will be read aloud during the listening session. Please indicate if you would prefer not to have your comments read or to remain anonymous.
Thank you in advance for participating in the CMS Innovation Center’s listening session.
