Webinar Preparing for Medicare’s Joint Replacement Bundled Payment Model

Preparing for Medicare’s Joint Replacement Bundled Payment Model

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
