Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar today named Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation Director Adam Boehler to also serve as his senior advisor for value-based transformation and innovation. “Adam is the kind of results-oriented, transformational leader we need to deliver on what President Trump has promised the American people: better health care at a lower cost,” Azar said. “At CMMI, he has already demonstrated an ambition for bold change, and will now be able to bring his deep experience with private sector innovation to help HHS execute on the long-talked-about goal of transforming our health care system into one that pays for value.” Before joining HHS in April as deputy administrator and director of CMMI, Boehler was founder and CEO of home-based care company Landmark Health. He also was founder of Avalon Health Solutions, which provides laboratory benefit management services, and an operating partner at private equity firm Francisco Partners.
