Implementingthe StudiesNationwide Every test of a new servicedelivery or payment model developed by CMMI also includes a plan of action to ensure that the lessons learned and best practices identified duringthe test can be spread as widely and effectively as possibleto support improvement for both CMS and the health care system at large.
