Wellbe Announces Webinar on Preparing for Medicare’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement CCJR Model
MedAssets to share lessons learned in physician alignment and bundled payments
Press Release - Aug 18, 2015 (PRnob.com) - OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar featuring Kevin Lieb, Senior Director for MedAssets’ Physician Alignment Solutions, titled “Prepping for CCJR: Lessons Learned in Physician Alignment and Bundled Payments.”
With CMS’ recent announcement of its Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CCJR) payment model and its plan to implement in seventy-five geographic areas, hospitals must be prepared to manage the entire episode of care from the time of surgery through ninety days after discharge. CCJR presents both opportunities and challenges for hospitals. In order to achieve success, organizations must manage their system of care delivery, ensure they are aligned with their physicians and post-acute providers, and master the analytics necessary for driving high quality, low cost care.
MedAssets has worked with numerous providers to implement alignment models that bring hospitals and their physicians together, evaluate, identify, and implement changes to the care delivery system to improve quality and decrease cost across the continuum, and employ meaningful analytics for managing an episode of care.
Kevin Lieb, Senior Director for MedAssets’ Physician Alignment Solutions division, will share examples demonstrating how organizations have successfully implemented Episodes of Care. Mr. Lieb will also share examples from both hospital led and specialist led programs and provide lessons learned from these experiences.
This webinar will enable attendees to do the following:
Identify alignment models within bundled payments and understand their applicability to your organization
Understand the analytic capabilities necessary for success in a bundled payment environment
Identify opportunities and strategies for cost reduction and quality improvement
Prepping for CCJR: Lessons Learned in Physician Alignment and Bundled Payments Date/Time: Thursday, August 27, 2015 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
