HHS Announces New Health Care Innovation Awards

Posted on 7/11/2014 by NTOCC ®

Yesterday, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell announced new prospective awardees (still to be finalized) to test innovative care models designed to deliver better health care and lower costs under the Health Care Innovation Awards initiative, authorized by the Affordable Care Act. This round of anticipated recipients brings the total amount of funding to as much as $360 million spanning 27 states and the District of Columbia. Prospective recipients will receive their final Notice of Award later this summer.

Importantly, there are several projects that focus specifically on care transitions, and many more projects that incorporate care transitions management into their models. 

 Attached are HHS’s press release and project profiles. To learn more about the second round of Health Care Innovation Awards, click here.
