The Next Generation of Bundled Payments: Charting a Course for Financial Success
 
The Next Generation of Bundled Payments - Charting a Course for Financial Success
In 2015, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell updated the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (“CMS”) timeline for moving fee-for-service to “alternative payment models” – the goal is to have 50 percent of Medicare fee-for-service payments be linked to “alternative payment models" by 2018. For the past 18 months, employers and commercial payers have explored bundled payments, one of the alternative payment methods, with more than 6,000 participants signed on to participate in testing and scaling bundled payments with Medicare in the BPCI program. The evaluation of such tests will inform precisely how bundles will roll out nationally.

Conceptually simple with a relatively low entry point, it is no surprise that when considering the alternatives, healthcare organizations and physicians are enthusiastically test-driving bundled payments. Bundled payment models can help shift market share and add volume, resulting in lower costs per case and an increase in an organization’s aggregate quality results. While CMS has piloted bundled payments through their Acute Care Episode Demonstration (ACE) project and the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Initiative (BPCII), organizations across the country are beginning to pursue bundled payments directly with commercial payers as well. The benefits are significant, and forward-thinking hospitals will consider seizing the opportunity now.

This 60-minute webinar, presented by GE Healthcare Camden Group, examines the current bundled payments environment and what successful organizations are doing to position themselves in the new era of payment reform and value-based care. Please join us Thursday, February 4th, 2016 at 2 PM Eastern as GE Healthcare Camden Group's Kelly Tiberio and Barbara Letts provide a real-time look at bundled payments and discuss how to succeed today and in the future in this arena.
