The CMI, which will begin full-scale operations as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2011, will be responsible for developing at least 18 reform models specified in the new law, including: patient-centered medical homes, promotion of care coordination through salary-based payment; community-based health teams to support small-practice medical homes; use of health information technology to coordinate care for the chronically ill, and salary-based payment for physicians.

"Changing the way we pay for and provide health care to reward high-quality, efficient care is an essential step toward a high performance health system," said Commonwealth Fund President Karen Davis.

The authors recommend that the CMI:
