The stakes are only growing in the effort to improve the cost effectiveness of health, CMMI’s Elizabeth Fowler says
Elizabeth Fowler, head of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, spoke to an HFMA audience about the importance of efforts at the federal level and beyond to improve the cost effectiveness of health. Stakeholders can expect CMMI to develop models to reduce low-value care. A greater number of mandatory models is likely, and CMMI recognizes the need to better support participants. The task of making the U.S. healthcare system more cost-effective is becoming increasingly urgent, the head of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) told an HFMA audience.
