Bundled Payments Bootcamp

Aligning Your Perioperative Services with Value-Based Patient Care

October 23, 2017 | 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Dallas Marriott City Center | Dallas, TX

As healthcare migrates from volume- to value-based payment, facilities need to adapt their perioperative governance structure and clinical processes to succeed. With the daily challenge of reducing physician and post-discharge costs, ensuring good clinical outcomes, and achieving high patient satisfaction scores, never has the role of perioperative leadership been more important.

Join OR Manager for a one-day workshop that will provide the metrics to create a bundled payments implementation plan you need to transition to value-based patient care. You will come away with practical tools and processes to apply immediately upon your return. If your organization currently has a plan, this workshop will give you the tools you need to address continuing issues.

Attend this event in Dallas to earn 7.25 CEs and 5.75 AEUs and hear from perioperative leaders from across the nation.

NEW: Payer Perspectives – Think Like a Payer to Build a Bundled Payment Program

How do payers view and administer bundled payments? The payer’s criteria must be met when contract terms are negotiated, so it’s important to understand these criteria and the administrative challenges of processing claims for a spectrum of services that are paid as a single reimbursement. Participants will learn:

  • How to negotiate a better bundled payment agreement, improve outcomes, and lower overall costs
  • Which patients to include in the bundle
  • Whether reinsurance is needed for cases that become cost outliers
  • How to “sell” the benefits of a bundled payment program to a payer and negotiate a win/win agreement for all parties involved
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
