Building off of the on-demand webinar, Bundled Payments: The Intersection of Cost, Quality, and Outcomes, this session will continue to focus on the emerging and changing market of bundled payments in both Medicare and commercial markets. This on-demand webinar also includes the latest information on Medicare implementation of bundled payments and new efforts to engage additional providers as well as challenges and successes of these models. In addition, the impact to costs and quality in the hospital and post-acute will be reviewed. Opportunities and challenges for hospitals will be discussed.
Bundled payments are a value-based payment system. Success within these models is measured based on decreasing cost, increasing quality, and quantifiable outcomes. One of the most important focuses of bundled payments is physician preference services such as orthopedics, spine and cardiac, which presents special challenges.
