Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar announced July 18 that Adam Boehler, currently Director of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), will also begin serving as Senior Advisor for Value-Based Transformation and Innovation. The implications of the change were described in an HHS announcement.

The ACR looks forward to working with Mr. Boehler and his staff to further promote the benefits of the use of appropriate use criteria through clinical decision support to ensure appropriate patient care and to reduce unnecessary imaging. The ACR also looks forward to future work with CMMI on specialty payment models for radiology and artificial intelligence’s role in value-based transformation and innovation.
