As written by FierceHealthcare:

“Health and Human Services [HHS] Secretary Alex Azar has named a successful healthcare entrepreneur to lead the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Center (CMMI). [ANCOR NOTE: CMMI helps to develop new payment and service models. ANCOR has an Alternate Payment Model Workgroup comprised of ANCOR members which is aiming to develop a proposal for the Center by the end of this year.]

Adam Boehler, the founder and former CEO of Landmark Health, will join the department next week as the deputy administrator and director of the center. Landmark is a medical group that uses a technology platform to deliver medical services to complex and chronically ill patients at home.

The CMS Innovation Center supports the development and testing of new healthcare payment and service delivery models. Created under the Obama Administration through the Affordable Care Act, the center has faced some troubles under the Trump administration including some recent turnaround concerns, Politico reported last month.”
