Who We Are

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services sponsors the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare FFRDC. CAMH serves as an objective adviser to CMS, the Department of Health and Human Services, and other government agencies with health-related missions.

Achieving large-scale connected integration—of transforming the health sector into a health system—is a systems engineering challenge of enormous scale. Sponsors and clients engaged in health functions within the federal government have an unprecedented need for the kinds of systems engineering and integration expertise, organizational and cross-boundary change management, and objective, trustworthy advice provided by FFRDCs.

CAMH objectively analyzes long-term health system problems, addresses complex technical questions, and generates creative and cost-effective solutions in strategic areas such as quality of care, new payment models, and business transformation. 

Bringing the Right Experts from Nonprofits, Academia, and Industry

CAMH works across the health community on a wide variety of business, policy, technology, and operational challenges. Among other issues, we're working to:

  • Strengthen the healthcare system through innovation
  • Build the capacity of the nation's health infrastructure and workforce to adapt to change
  • Accelerate the pace of translating scientific discoveries into practice

CAMH provides specialized expertise, health capabilities, and innovative solutions to transform delivery of the nation’s healthcare services. With CAMH, government organizations and other entities have ready access to a collaborative alliance of partners from nonprofits, academia, and industry.

MITRE operates the CAMH FFRDC and brings experts to bear on subjects ranging from health policy and delivery system reform to federal acquisition, cloud computing, and complex systems engineering. CAMH also offers agencies access to experts from RAND, McKinsey & Company, and other leading healthcare organizations, as well as select qualified small and disadvantaged businesses.
