Health Care Innovation Challenge

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation recently launched its Health Care Innovation Challenge, with as much as $1 billion in grant funding offered to those who "implement the most compelling new ideas to deliver better health, improved care, and lower costs to people enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), particularly those with the highest health care needs."

The initiative aims to engage a wide-ranging cohort of innovation partners to identify and test new care delivery and payment models, identify new workforce development and deployment models, and support innovators capable of rapidly implementing models for care improvement.

"Proposals should be focused on innovative approaches to improving health and lowering costs for high risk/high opportunity populations, including Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP beneficiaries," the announcement says. Core factors for any proposed strategy must be workforce development and deployment, speed to implementation, and model sustainability.
