The CHART Model is a voluntary model that will test whether aligned financial incentives, operational & regulatory flexibilities, and robust technical support will help rural providers transform care on a broad scale. Within the CHART Model, the Community Transformation Track aims to drive modernization of rural health delivery systems by providing Lead Organizations with upfront funding and Participant Hospitals with predictable finances through a Capitated Payment Amount (CPA) and operational flexibilities through benefit enhancements and beneficiary engagement incentives.
