On November 16, 2010, CMS formally established a new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center). Created by the ACA, the Innovation Center will examine new ways of delivering health care and paying health care providers that can save money for Medicare and Medicaid while improving the quality of care. Richard Gilfillan, MD, has been named Acting Director of the Innovation Center. CMS also announced the launch of new demonstration projects that will support efforts to better coordinate care and improve health outcomes for patients.
