January 11, 2019 -- 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.
