What you need to know now...

CMS announced BPCI Advanced, its newest voluntary bundled payment program on Jan 9, 2018.

BPCI Advanced is designed to promote coordination and efficiency across the care continuum for a set of 29 inpatient and 3 outpatient Clinical Episodes. It will do this by defining a single, bundled payment amount (or Target Price) for all care provided by physicians, hospitals, and other providers extending 90 days from the end of an inpatient stay or outpatient procedure.    

Your Target Price will be a function of your case mix, historical Medicare expenditures, and patterns of spending relative to your peers. As a result, the value to you of participating in this initiative is a function of not only your ability to achieve steady improvements in cost and quality but also your performance relative to others in your area.

We’re here to help - reach out to us for a complimentary analysis of your organization’s Post-Acute Care (PAC) spend patterns to quantify the value of participating in BPCI Advanced and identify specific strategies for maximizing your performance.
