Bundled Payments at Partners
June 30, 2020, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
David Bates, MD, Chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Kyan C. Safavi, MD, MBA, Medical Director of Healthcare Systems Engineering, Partners HealthCare (Mass General Brigham). In 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative in which a set of services related to an episode of care is bundled into a single payment.
In this teleconference, Drs. Bates and Safavi describes Partners HealthCare’s experience with a four-part framework of technology-enabled functions that providers can use to build a high performing care system that can achieve low-cost, high-quality care in bundled episodes. While the focus of this discussion is on the technology, people and processes are also critical and are addressed.
