Determining how much risk your organization is willing to take, along with the key characteristics of your program are two factors that will help you determine whether your organization should participate in
CMS' Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) and which model is the best fit.
And with CMS' recent extension of the deadline to file the BPCI program application due to high levels of interest, healthcare organizations have even more time to determine if they should participate and if so, which model to select.
Listen to pre-conference comments from Jim Reilly.
