PMMC to Host Webinar on How to Prepare for CJR Model
The CJR Model is Here - Using Data to Prepare for the Financial Impact
Tuesday, March 15 at 1:00 pm ET/12:00 pm CT
PMMC will host an educational webinar with Healthcare Business Insights (HBI) on March 15th to help hospitals prepare for financial impact of the CJR model.
Medicare’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Model will go live in 67 markets on April 1st, leaving many hospitals accountable for the total cost of services across the entire episode of care for hip and knee replacements.
With that accountability comes risk; challenges include identifying post-acute care (PAC) providers to work with and to avoid, as well as strategies to align and incentivize PAC “collaborators” with physicians and hospital staff.
This webinar will discuss the data, processes, and financial planning steps required to adapt to this mandatory model and Medicare’s future episodic models as well.
After the conference, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the value of internal and external benchmark data, where to find it, and how to best use it to prepare for CJR
- Determine how quality scores impact payment to CMS
- Take actionable steps to adjust the management and coordination of care for CJR bundles and future Medicare bundling initiatives
