The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the HHS Office of the National Coordinator are hosting the first "Care Innovations Summit" in Washington, DC today to "showcase innovative work in care delivery and payment." The Summit will bring together leading innovators from inside and outside the healthcare industry to encourage and promote knowledge-sharing, "matchmaking," and engagement to drive transformation of our healthcare system.
At today's Summit, Dr. Michael Horberg, a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS and Director of HIV/AIDS at Kaiser Permanente, will announce Kaiser Permanente's HIV Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to encourage healthcare providers to increase the number of HIV-positive people getting effective treatment. Kaiser Permanente hopes to do this by sharing its toolkit of clinical best practices and provider and patient education materials with healthcare providers, and by offering technical assistance on mentoring, training, and health IT.
