Second Round of HHS Health Care Innovation Awards Announced

May 15, 2013

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced the second round of Health Care Innovation Awards. This second round of Health Care Innovation Awards differs from the first round in that CMS is specifically seeking innovations in four areas: rapidly reducing costs for patients with Medicare and Medicaid in outpatient hospital and other settings; improving care for populations with specialized needs; testing improved financial and clinical models for specific types of providers, including specialists; and linking clinical care delivery to preventive and population health.
