As a convener in Model 2 of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation's Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative, naviHealth has partnered with five health systems, spanning 11 acute care hospitals for retrospective acute and post acute care bundles.
naviHealth is coordinating with these hospitals to manage care across 48 clinical conditions identified by CMS.
During Bundled Payments: Opportunities in Effective Retrospective Acute and Post Acute Care Bundles, a May 21st webinar, now available for replay, Kelsey P. Mellard, vice president of partnership marketing and policy with naviHealth, shares the first quarter experiences from these pilot programs, along with the current bundled payment opportunities for organizations not yet participating in CMMI's pilot program.
You will learn:
- The key issues and various scenarios for physician practices, hospitals and post-acute providers to participate in payment bundling programs;
- The episodes of care selected by naviHealth and its partners and why these episodes were selected;
- Best practice protocols for gain-sharing within bundled payment programs;
- How to manage expectations around revenue cycle management and cash on hand for bundled payments;
- The preparation needed for physicians and hospitals to participate in bundled payment programs, including: contractual changes, operational work flow changes, data analytics, staffing requirements, care management, technology needs, cultural integration and developing a post acute network; and
- Future bundled payment opportunities for physician groups and hospitals for both those participating in CMMI's pilot program and for those who are not yet participating.
