CMS' Andy Slavitt: New payment systems should provide relief to docs

Speaking at the World Medical Innovation Forum in Boston this week, Andy Slavitt, acting administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, acknowledged that regulators have over-burdened physicians but was hopeful the development of new value-based payment systems will better align payments with clinical practice, according to Becker's Hospital Review. "When you see what actually does engage physicians, which is more freedom, less control, less burden, it's quite exciting," They're quite excited by these new models that accomplish that," Slavitt told The Boston Globe.
