CMS Administrator Visits Hartford Hospital to Kick Off Listening Tour

Seema Verma, Administrator of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), visited Hartford Hospital in 2018 for a conversation with physicians and other experts.

Administrator Verma’s stop in Hartford kicked off a national listening tour designed to gather feedback on how the agency can ease regulatory burdens for our nation’s caregivers.

During the visit, she led a round-table discussion and sought input from Hartford HealthCare and Connecticut State Medical Society physicians and leaders on experiences with the agency, and ideas for improvement. Specifically, Hartford Hospital leaders discussed developing more consistent quality measures, facilitating care integration, enabling faster adoption of new technologies and treatments, strengthening support for Medicaid and addressing the opioid crisis in Connecticut.
