Upgrade your joint replacement pathway for CJR

The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model is CMS’s first mandatory bundled payment program. It holds hospitals accountable for managing outcomes across a 90-day episode of care for two common Medicare inpatient surgeries—hip and knee replacements.

As of fall 2016, CJR is live in 67 markets. CMS can mandate this program on a broader scale, and industry experts expect a greater expansion of bundled payment programs across the country. Now that organizations are—or may soon be—on the hook for financial and quality outcomes in and beyond the hospital, they should prioritize updating their current joint replacement care pathway.

Consider these five strategies to reduce variation across the joint replacement care episode, and then access our Joint Replacement Pathway Toolkit to find implementation guidance and resources.
