HHS Begins ‘Innovation Advisors’ Program
The Hill: HHS Launches Innovation Program As Part Of Reform Law
The Health and Human Services Department on Monday launched a new component of its effort to make health care better and more efficient. HHS announced its "Innovation Advisors" program, through which it will select as many as 200 experts to work with doctors and other providers on ways to improve the health care delivery system. The program was created by the health care reform law. The advisers will support the newly formed Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to help test new ideas for coordinating care, the department said in a release (Baker, 10/17).
