Adam Boehler to lead CMS' innovation center

CMS tapped Adam Boehler, a California startup executive, to lead its innovation center, dubbed CMMI, Politico Morning eHealth reports.

The center was established under the Obama administration to encourage innovation but CMS recently sought to take its endeavors in a new direction. The agency issued an informal request for information seeking feedback on the center in September, specifically looking at ways CMS could "empower beneficiaries as consumers, provide price transparency, increase choices and competition to drive quality, reduce costs and improve outcomes."

Mr. Boehler serves as CEO of Huntington Beach, Calif.-based Landmark Health, a home-based care company, but he's also led investments at venture capital firm Accretive. He wouldn't be able to officially take his seat at CMMI until he divests assets to avoid any potential conflicts of interest.
