CMS Kicks Off Innovation Advisors Program

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media, October 18, 2011

Each innovation advisor will receive a stipend of about $20,000 to help cover the cost of transportation, lodging and other expenses. During the six-month training program each participant will be expected to set aside 10 hours per week to study the curriculum and to implement their individual systems improvement project. The entire program will last about one year.

A CMS spokesperson explained that the program's success will be measured in a couple of ways—successful completion of individual improvement projects by each innovation advisor and the level of support for testing new models of healthcare care delivery.
