Focusing on the Entire Episode of Care: Reducing Costs While Improving the Quality of Care

With rapidly changing healthcare trends, bundle payment projects, pay for performance models and the newly proposed CCJR ruling from Medicare, all are a strong indicator that hospital and surgeon reimbursement will absolutely be impacted by quality of care and how effective the entire episode of care is managed.   Due to the high volume and predictable nature of joint replacement surgeries, orthopedics will be the most frequent DRG in consideration for a bundle payment, thus emphasizing the importance for hospitals and orthopedic surgeons to ensure they are providing the highest quality of care at the lowest appropriate cost, consistently.

Accelero has worked with over 300 orthopedic programs to improve the quality of care and minimize cost for the entire episode of care. Accelero has a complete set of core competencies around bundled payments, including:

  • Establishing an infrastructure for successful implementation that involves the hospital and surgeons
  • Care redesign ensures effective preoperative and postoperative processes that provide better care and cost savings to the payer and hospital
  • Utilizing data to drive operational decisions
  • Focus beyond the hospital: reducing post acute care costs and preventing readmissions
  • Implementing quality and cost tracking mechanisms to ensure program sustainability
