ASTRO lauds selection of Shah for senior role at CMS

Radiation oncologist Dr. Anand Shah has been named senior medical adviser for innovation at the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a move that has drawn praise from the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).

Shah previously was chief medical officer at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, a CMS office tasked with driving innovation in payment and delivery models for healthcare. He is also a radiation oncologist at the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

"In this role, he will expand his already extensive work in modernizing American healthcare, including efforts to improve patient access to high-quality care through alternative payment models," ASTRO said in a statement.
