Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized new Innovation Center models – is your hospital included?

These new models advance CMS’ goal of improving the efficiency and quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries and encourage hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers to work together to improve the coordination of care from the initial hospitalization through recovery.

The models will be referred to as:

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Model;
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Model;
  • Surgical Hip and Femur Fracture Treatment (SHFFT) Model; and
  • Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) Incentive Payment Model.
