Jefferson Health, Boston Medical Center + 5 systems join Medicaid project

The Medicaid Transformation Project added seven health systems to its national effort to transform how care is delivered to vulnerable populations.

To date, the project includes 24 health systems comprising 342 hospitals and more than $121 billion in combined annual revenue.

Launched in the summer of 2018, the Medicaid Transformation Project will be led by Avia, a network of health systems focused on digital innovation and transformation, and former CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt. The project will focus on improvements across four facets: behavioral health, women and infant care, substance use disorder, and avoidable emergency department visits.

Here are the seven latest health systems to join the initiative:

1. BayCare Health System (Clearwater, Fla.)
2. Boston Medical Center
3. Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles)
4. Carilion Clinic (Roanoke, Va.)
5. Children's Hospital Colorado (Aurora)
6. Jefferson Health (Philadelphia)
7. University Hospitals (Cleveland)
