In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, organizations representing patients and healthcare providers from throughout the United States shared a set of principles on how to improve the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) and optimize its value in advancing healthcare delivery.   The organizations are all participants in the Healthcare Leaders for Accountable Innovation in Medicare and Medicaid Coalition.   In the letter, the groups told Secretary Price that, among other recommendations, CMMI should practice a higher level of transparency in its decisionmaking, improve collaboration with healthcare stakeholders, and improve the sharing of data from demonstration projects.
