Brad Smith Named Director of CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) and Senior Advisor for Value-Based Transformation

This week, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that Brad Smith will serve as Director of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) at CMS and Senior Advisor to Secretary Azar for Value-Based Transformation. Smith most recently served as the Chief Operating Officer of Anthem’s Diversified Business Group and was previously co-founder and CEO of Aspire Health, a healthcare company focused on providing home-based palliative care services to patients facing serious illnesses.

As a reminder, CMMI is tasked with developing alternative payment models (APMs) and other programs to improve quality and reduce cost. CMMI continues to focus on moving physicians away from fee-for-service into APMs.
