With the recent announcement of 500 provider organizations selected to participate in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative, believed to be the largest demonstration project ever run by CMS, both payer and provider interest in the adoption of payment bundling is at an all-time high.
Moving Forward with Payment Bundling, a 45-minute webinar on March 13, 2013, now available for replay, features Jay Sultan, associate vice president and chief product portfolio architect for Trizetto. Sultan provides perspectives on the emerging bundled payment trend, including:
- An overview of payment bundling rationale, trends, and outcomes. Why does payment bundling work? What is the evidence that it works?;
- Specific administrative and organizational challenges created with bundled payment programs for healthcare payers, such as contracting challenges, processing claims and payments under payment bundling, and problems with product design and member responsibility; and
- Address provider issues with bundled payments, including the importance of clinical transformation, forms of organization among providers delivering an episode of care, and administrative requirements around payment and incentive processing.
