WASHINGTON, DC -- HEALTH EQUITY UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- NOVEMBER 30, 2021: The CMS Innovation Center invites you to listen to a special roundtable discussion on how the Center can execute on its strategic objective to Advance Health Equity. Please register here to participate.

This roundtable is scheduled for Wednesday, December 8, 2021 from 1:30-3:00pm ET and is in follow-up to the release of the CMS Innovation Center's recently published white paper Driving Health System Transformation - A Strategy for the CMS Innovation Center's Second Decade. The roundtable will be an opportunity to hear from thought leaders in the areas of health equity and health care about their perspectives on the following three questions:

  1. What approaches or interventions should the CMS Innovation Center prioritize when building models to eliminate health inequities?
  2. CMS is currently exploring options for expanding collection of self-reported demographic and social needs data. What could the CMS Innovation Center do to support collection of self-reported data? What are successful approaches for such collection?
  3. What are the most significant obstacles for safety net providers who want to participate in a CMS Innovation Center or another value-based, accountable care model, and how do you recommend the CMS Innovation Center help these providers overcome these obstacles?

IMPORTANT NOTE: In addition to the opportunity to listen into the roundtable, written comments on these questions and health equity are encouraged and may be submitted at, with "HEALTH EQUITY ROUNDTABLE" in the subject line of the email. Some of the written comments may be read aloud during the roundtable session. Please indicate if you would prefer not to have your comments read or wish to remain anonymous.

Thank you in advance for participating in the CMS Innovation Center's Health Equity Roundtable session. Registration is open.
