The Six Pillars Framework for Advancing Health Policy Webinar, Wednesday, May 25 at 2:00 pm ET, Hosted by Medisked. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is now structuring its innovations and policy directions into six pillars. The six pillars hold together the overall goal of CMS, which is to foster a U.S. health care system that is better, smarter, and healthier – to improve care, spend health care dollars more wisely, and make our communities healthier. In this webinar, industry expert JoAnn Lamphere will discuss CMS’s vision, the role that we can each play within this framework, and how CMS, states, providers, and MCOs can collaborate and share accountability for achieving discernable improvement in healthcare outcomes and quality of life for individuals.
