About the Webinar
Bundled Payments and other Alternative Payment Models (APMs) will prospectively define the payment for a given episode of inpatient care. Hospital and physician providers will be at-risk under these APMs for excess costs, but also have the opportunity to share in savings created by effective and efficient care.
Hospitals must know their adverse outcome rates that include the post-discharge period of time - and these results need to be benchmarked against national performance standards to inform decisions about care redesign. The reduction in adverse outcomes has the greatest potential for the elimination of excess costs of care.
- Detail the importance of risk-adjustment in comparing the performance of hospitals with adverse outcomes.
- Discuss the importance of being better informed about adverse outcomes that are not recognized until the patient has been discharged from the hospital.
- Demonstrate how comparative effectiveness can be used to direct hospitals in efforts to improve outcomes and reduce excess costs of care in the world of APMs.
