Initiative Details

The second round of the Health Care Innovation Awards are supporting public and private organizations in four defined areas that have a high likelihood of driving health care system transformation and delivering better outcomes. The four defined areas include:

  • Models that are designed to rapidly reduce Medicare, Medicaid, and/or CHIP costs in outpatient and/or post-acute settings.
  • Models that improve care for populations with specialized needs.
  • Models that test approaches for specific types of providers to transform their financial and clinical models.
  • Models that improve the health of populations – defined geographically (health of a community), clinically (health of those with specific diseases), or by socioeconomic class – through activities focused on engaging beneficiaries, prevention (for example, a diabetes prevention program or a hypertension prevention program), wellness, and comprehensive care that extend beyond the clinical service delivery setting.

 

The final awards range in value from an expected $2 million to $23.8 million over a three-year period. Each project will be monitored for measurable improvements in quality of care and savings generated. Recipients received their final Notice of Award during summer 2014.
