With the launch of the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model on April 1, CMS has ushered in a new phase for payment reform. Under this mandatory program, roughly 800 hospitals across the U.S. will assume financial accountability for the cost of all services provided to Medicare patients during 90-day care episodes for hip and knee replacements.
With 60% of participating hospitals facing potential penalties given their high costs, developing new analytic capabilities, integrated clinical models, and innovative partnerships will be essential to succeeding under bundled payments.
We invite you to hear our experts discuss:
- The new requirements for hospitals participating in CJR
- How post-acute care providers can position themselves for success
- The future of mandatory bundled payment models
