On October 17th, the Innovation Center announced a new initiative – the Innovation Advisors Program. Innovation Advisors will support the Innovation Center in testing new models of care delivery, use their knowledge and skills in their organization in pursuing the three-part aim, work with local organizations and groups to drive delivery system reforms, and gather new ideas for possible testing or diffusion by the Innovation Center. The Innovation Advisors Program consists of face-to-face national and regional meetings, training sessions, seminars, presentations by subject matter experts and individual coaching. Innovation Advisors will partake in a dialogue between their home organization and the Innovation Center. A fellowship stipend of up to $20,000 is available to support the activities of individuals selected for the program. The Applications are due November 15th. Additional information, including the application, is available at http://www.orise.orau.gov/IAP/index.html. It is anticipated that CMS will select approximately 200 individuals to participate in this program.
