Adding a Sustainability Lens to Health Innovation Pilots

June 17, 2024

Summary
The CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) has proposed its first innovation model incorporating sustainability, named Transforming Episode-Based Accountability (TEAM). The mandatory payment model for acute care organizations includes a voluntary component for emissions reporting, allowing these organizations to receive feedback and technical assistance. This initiative follows an increased focus on the interplay between climate and health, with recent regulatory moves such as the SEC’s carbon emissions disclosure requirements for publicly traded companies and California's stringent emissions reporting mandates. The TEAM model underscores the emerging connection between sustainability and health care delivery, signaling a shift toward integrating climate considerations into health policy and value-based payment strategies.
