Novato Community Hospital Pilots Innovative Healthcare Reform, CMS Initiative

Today's announcement marks the start of Phase 1 of Models 2, 3 and 4. In Phase 1 (January–July 2013), over 100 participants partnering with over 400 provider organizations, will receive new data from CMS on care patterns and engage in shared learning in how to improve care. Phase 1 participants are generally expected to become participants in Phase 2, in which approved participants opt to take on financial risk for episodes of care starting in July 2013, pending contract finalization and completion of CMS' standard program integrity reviews.

"The objective of this initiative is to improve the quality of health care delivery for Medicare beneficiaries, while reducing program expenditures, by aligning the financial incentives of all providers," said Acting Administrator Marilyn Tavenner.

Novato Community Hospital is in the Sutter Health West Bay Region, which provides comprehensive health services for the community stretching from San Francisco and Marin County to Crescent City and Lake County. It includes California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, Novato Community Hospital, Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa, Sutter Lakeside Hospital in Lakeport, Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, numerous outpatient centers and the CPMC Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the SHWBR. We strive to provide access to primary care physicians and specialty services in each of our communities, and have a network of over 1,500 physicians locally and over 3,500 throughout the Sutter Health network.
