Lessons Learned from Aurora Health Care's Experience with a Mandatory Bundle
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) first mandatory bundled payment affects almost 20% of hospitals nationwide. The CJR holds hospitals financially accountable for episodic spending performance on eligible Medicare fee-for-service joint replacements, and is structured in such a way that practically demands coordinated IT support in order to "win" under its terms.
This on-demand presentation describes how Aurora Health Care's hospitals in the CJR organized an effort to standardize clinical processes, improve discharge efficiency, and better coordinate care.
This presentation will help you:
