Active Projects Report

The CMS Active Projects Report (APR) is an annual publication listing the research projects that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) supports in pursuit of better health care for our beneficiaries.

Just as CMS programs span a wide range of American health care, our research needs cover a broad spectrum of topics, methods, and interests. The annual CMS Active Projects Report describes the Agency's research priorities and lists research activities by title. This includes information on the project's lead researcher, status, and focus. The Agency's current research priorities provide insight into the greatest interests for CMS and the emerging research needs of the American health care system.  

In addition to the APR publications, the Active Projects Report List enables one to search over all projects that are listed within the latest publication. Please view the Related Links Inside CMS section below for the link to the Active Projects Report List.
