CMS believes that basing enhanced funding decisions on outcomes – that is, whether technology enables a state’s specific program and business needs – will strengthen state and federal accountability, improve state flexibility, and increase the likelihood of successful IT implementation. CMS, in partnership with policy and state stakeholders, is experimenting to develop outcomes-based end-to-end oversight.
CMS is currently conducting experiments with a number of states to develop outcomes-based approaches for as-is pharmacy assessment, electronic visit verification (EVV) certification, and modular certification. In this session, CMS will share the high-level approach and states will share their experiences and lessons learned with an emphasis on how focusing on outcomes helps ensure that their program and business needs are met.
