Bundled Payment Program
The design of the BPCI-Advanced program appears, at first glance, to offer little opportunity for SNFs looking to redesign their business models and take episodic healthcare risk alongside hospitals and payers. It effectively sunsets the original BPCI option that kicked off the risk-based episode at post-acute admission (called "Model 3"), leaving all bundled post-acute services to start with either an inpatient or outpatient service.
Value-based care models, including bundled payments for hip and knee replacements, reduce costs and unnecessary care, according to a new analysis.
Caremerge has teamed up with Aver Informatics to provide help for those pursuing bundled payment initiatives.
