Purpose of model evaluations
The CMS Innovation Center must evaluate its models as part of its statutory authority. Evaluations look at provider and patient experiences with a model, model implementation, transformation of the health care marketplace around a model, and a model’s impact on spending and quality of care. Evaluation findings inform decisions related to model modification, expansion, or termination, as well as the design of future models.
