Welcome to this week's issue of VBC Newsstand brought to you by VBCExhibitHall.com
A trio of publications from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) leadership this year has clarified and advanced the federal strategic vision for value-based care. In January, leaders reinforced their commitment to value-based care with the goal that “100 percent of people with Original Medicare will be in a care relationship with accountability for quality and total cost of care by 2030.” Meena Seshamani, director of the Center for Medicare, identified accountable care organizations (ACOs) as a key component of the strategy to improve health equity.
