Setting the PACE: Improving outcomes for seniors

As healthcare marches toward a value-based care model, increased care coordination and a focus on the patient outside the hospital walls become increasingly important. In these Essential Insights, we explore programs like PACE that support collaboration, encourage innovation in healthcare, and help hospitals and PAC providers to achieve their value-based goals.


The voluntary path forward in bundled payments

The recently proposed changes to the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model and cancellation of the mandatory Episode Payment Models (EPMs) by CMS signals that voluntary bundles are likely to move forward, and even accelerate, as CMS and CMMI further recognize their value and support their expansion in response to market demand. In these Essential Insights, Brian Fuller, VP of Value-based Care, shares his thoughts on how the proposed ruling may impact the future of voluntary bundled payments, particularly BPCI and the broader shift toward value-based care.


Patient engagement: Finding the right balance between high-tech and high touch

Technology has provided a wide range of valuable options for improving the patient experience — one that extends beyond traditional care settings to incorporate care across a wide clinical spectrum. In these Essential Insights, we explore best practices for healthcare administrators to adopt to ensure positive patient experiences and reiterate the idea that technology will never entirely replace the value of human interaction, particularly in healthcare environments.


BPCI Participation Readiness: 4 Things You Need to Know

While participating in bundled payments can be a complex endeavor, health systems nationwide have proven them to be a reliable way to transform how patients experience post-acute care, reduce total costs to the healthcare system, and most importantly, improve outcomes for patients. With CMS’ upcoming announcement on the new model of BPCI expected soon, we urge health systems to begin preparing for this important step on the road to value-based care success.


The key benefits of participating in bundled payments for health systems and patients

With the expectation that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will announce its new bundled payment model in the coming months, bundled payment models have been thrust into the spotlight as a viable opportunity for health systems to participate in value-based reimbursement — an opportunity presenting the question for many of when, rather than if — as the industry marches steadily in that direction.
