The Center for Medicare and & Medicaid Innovation (CMS Innovation Center) is seeking input from interested stakeholders and the public on how educational opportunities for providers interested in participating in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) or other coordinated care initiatives could be designed. An Open Door Forum on this topic was held on Monday, August 27.
The Affordable Care Act requires the Innovation Center to consult with clinical and analytical experts with expertise in medicine and health care management and other interested parties when developing payment and service delivery models for testing. As a growing number of organizations are participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program or ACO arrangements in the private sector, the Innovation Center is seeking input on educational opportunities for providers who are interested in learning more about ACOs.
On the call, CMS staff provided a brief introduction and then opened the phone lines for members of the public who wished to contribute to the dialogue.
