Speaker: Gabrielle White, RN, CASC, Executive Director at Hoag Orthopedic Institute
April 13, 2014 (Newswire.com) - OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Gabrielle White, RN, CASC, Executive Director at Hoag Orthopedic Institute, on " Getting Started with Bundled Payments for Orthopedics."
The webinar will provide a basic outline of a bundled payment model for total joint replacement or other orthopedic procedures, based on the experience at Hoag with real life examples of problems encountered and solutions created. The session will provide an overview of what to consider for process and contracting, including who should be involved in the development process and how to mitigate risk in the model.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute has been an early adopter and leader in using bundled payments for orthopedic procedures. They adopted bundled payment contracts on hip and knee replacements with three health plans as part of a three-year demonstration with the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA). They found their care redesign efforts reinforced coordination incentives for physicians as well as lowered infection rates.
