Research Reports

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) research efforts span a broad range of issues, addressing the Agency's information needs and long-term research needs. Research topics were  proposed by many internal and external Agency sources, including the intramural researchers at CMS. On the Research Reports List page (see link in left column) you will find a description of important, archived research projects through 2012 and links to additional information (also see the Downloads and Related Links sections below).  We are providing this archived content as a resource for high-quality and relevant health policy research, through transparency of healthcare data and analytics.

Maintaining an expanding portfolio dating from 2010 to present day, the CMS Innovation Center contributes reports and datasets to the community of health care innovators, data researchers, and policy analysts, among others, supporting the development and testing of innovative health care payment and service delivery models. These are available at Data and Reports page.
