The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation has re-launched its website .  The Center continues to pursue the “triple aim” of better healthcare, better health and reduced costs and continues to have three areas of focus: patient care models; seamless and coordinated care models; and community and population health models.   The Center was established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The care coordination focus area seems to be the most developed, with a Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice demonstrations to begin in eight states this summer, Medicaid state health home demonstrations being launched, applications just received for state demonstrations to integrate care for dual Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries, and details of a Federally Qualified Health Center Advanced Primary Care Practice demonstration program being finalized.
