About Anne

Anne Mutti has more than 20 years of experience working in Medicare payment policy, delivery reform issues, and qualitative research.

As part of the evaluation of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) Comprehensive Primary Care Plus initiative, Anne leads the analysis of payers’ efforts to provide data feedback to physician practices across the 14 participating regions as well as market-level implementation in two regions. She was recently the Deputy Director for an AHRQ funded project aimed at facilitating collaboration among three grantees conducting research on the characteristics of health systems and their adoption of patient-centered outcomes research. As part of that work, she oversaw the organization of workgroup meetings, creation of a compendium of health systems that required integrating data from multiple public and private datasets, development of manuscripts and web content, and efforts to promote measure harmonization across grantees.

For the evaluation of the Health Care Innovation Award initiative, Anne led the qualitative implementation evaluation of two programs that were restructuring care delivery in a hospital and post-acute care setting and also coordinated the analysis across eight awardees focused on improving primary and preventive care. The overall evaluation of the CMS initiative focused on 39 programs awardees to achieve better quality of care, improve population health, and lower costs through the improvement of care delivery processes.

Anne was also the Deputy Project Director for the Learning System for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). In that capacity, she led the learning system for Medicare Pioneer ACOs. Learning system activities included conducting webinars and hosting working groups for ACOs on post-acute care and payment issues, preparing case studies, interviewing ACOs about their learning needs, and developing briefings for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, examining the goals and progress of the initiative.

Prior to joining Mathematica in 2012, Anne was a Principal Policy Analyst at the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission where she focused on readmissions and bundled payment policy, the infrastructure supporting quality improvement, and provider efficiency measurement. She holds a M.P.A. in health policy and management from New York University, Wagner School of Public Service.
