Dr. Lichter Discusses the Need for CMS to Run Pilot Programs to Create Well Crafted Solutions to the SGR

In this clip, Dr. Allen Lichter, CEO of ASCO, addresses the need for pilot tests and projects to be implemented to learn from them similar to how CMS did when moving toward accountable care organizations (ACOs). Dr. Lichter believes these pilot projects should answer questions, such as how should bundled payments be used, how should episode-based care be used, and how various capitation systems might work.
