CMS Accepting Applications for Innovation Advisor Program

On Monday, CMS announced it was accepting applications for an Innovation Advisors program designed to help health professionals deepen skills that will drive improvements in patient care and cost-cutting, according to an AdvanceWeb report.

The initiative is made possible by the Affordable Care Act and will be managed by The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. Under the new program, there will be up to 200 "innovation advisors," who will attend in-person meetings and remote sessions to expand their skills and knowledge and apply what they learn in their different areas.

After an intensive orientation phase, innovation advisors will work with the Center to test new models of care delivery in their own organizations and communities. They will also partner with other health professionals to find ideas that work and share them regionally and nationally.
