About This Webconference
CMS's emerging focus on bundled payment—particularly the mandatory Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement program (CJR) requirement—has drastically raised industry focus on episode efficiency.
Yet many questions remain. Readiness to respond to episode risk is uneven; physician and post-acute alignment pose significant challenges for many.
Beyond those challenges is a larger one of hospital strategy—how far, how fast can providers expect to see bundled payment prevalence increase? Will bundles take off in the commercial market, where uptake to date has been slow? Are there opportunities for sustainable business advantage to be gained by pursuing bundles as a strategy—and if so, what are they?
This two-part series examines key trends in bundled payment, highlighting key considerations for the outlook for bundled payment contracting with different purchaser segments—CMS, health plans, and employers.
The first presentation on May 10 focuses on CMS and how providers should be thinking about capturing business advantage from efficient episodes in the Medicare population.
The second presentation on May 17 looks beyond Medicare to focus on the potential for hospitals to achieve market share growth through steerage on the basis of episode excellence in health plan and employer segments.
