Beginning January 1, 2016, hospitals across the country will be held accountable for the quality and cost of care provided to Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries for hip and knee replacements, from surgery through recovery. To be successful under the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Model, hospitals must collaborate with physicians and post-acute care providers to redesign care, reduce costs, and improve outcomes.
In this webinar, Dereesa Reid, CEO of Hoag Orthopedic Institute, and John Fink and Jason Lee of ECG discuss:
- Financial arrangements among providers that enhance collaboration and align incentives
- A recommended care redesign process that standardizes care delivery, eliminates variation, improves quality, and reduces costs
- The potential impact that post-acute care may have on the cost of a joint replacement episode and approaches for managing those costs
- Opportunities to achieve a value-based joint replacement program that is integrated, scaled, rationalized, informed, and responsive
