nyulangoneThe Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Initiative began generating data in January of 2013. Dr. Iorio will outline the challenges and benefits of implementing BPCI for Total Joint Arthroplasty at an urban, tertiary, academic medical center with a hybrid compensation model. Early results from the implementation of a Medicare BPCI Model 2 primary TJA program demonstrate cost-savings with an improvement in quality of care metrics and continued cost savings through year 3 of our experience. Changes in patient optimization, care coordination, clinical care pathways, and evidence-based protocols are the key to improving the quality metrics and cost effectiveness within the implementation of the Bundled Payment for Care Initiative, thus bringing increased value to our TJA patients.

Maximizing Value in a Bundled Environment – Keys to Success:
• Evidence based, cost effectiveness analysis
• Standardized protocol adoption
• Transparent data
• Perioperative Patient Optimization
• Care management
• Physician-hospital alignment with Gain sharing
• Enhanced pain relief and rehabilitation protocols
• Blood management and rational VTED prophylaxis
