The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has launched pilot programs in Indiana and North Carolina to improve the delivery and quality of care to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries while lowering costs.

The Indiana Health Information Exchange will conduct the first large-scale Medicare study of a multi-payer, quality reporting and improvement, and pay-for performance program. Data from Medicare, Medicaid, private insurers and employer-sponsored health plans will be combined with clinical data to test if quality improvement and pay-for-performance programs are more effective in a multi-payer environment. About 800 providers treating the majority of Medicare fee-for-service patients in the Indianapolis area will participate.
