What began as a Medicare experiment—considering joint replacement, including 90 days of post-discharge care, as a single acute care “episode” and bundling payment for it—is fast becoming policy. ECG Principal Deirdre Baggot, Ph.D., will join this panel discussion as Baptist Health shares how it succeeded in both managing care and reducing costs by 15%, for an annual savings of more than $2.5 million. Participants will learn how to organize and prioritize their implementation strategies as bundled payment becomes the norm for joint replacement.
Key topics include the following:
- Physician Engagement: How did Baptist Health work with physician leaders to change the way care is delivered?
- Financial Alignment: How did Baptist structure its savings with provider partners to align incentives as a way to promote behavior change?
- Transitions in Care: How did Baptist develop and align care processes with post-acute providers?
- Patient Engagement: What strategies were used to engage patients in their care process?
