New Political Climate is Time to Tout Results of BPCI

The new Republican administration has clearly signaled that there will be changes to healthcare policy, and Remedy Partners is very active in the discussions about how to flesh out what this looks like. One thing everyone agrees upon is that the transition to value-based care is happening and bundles are delivering savings. In fact Remedy and its partners, at our current run-rate, will generate approximately $130 million in savings to Medicare during 2017.

It is worth reiterating that CMS has existing funding and authority to continue a multi-year, voluntary bundled payments program through September 30th, 2018 and CMS has already stated that voluntary bundled payments will continue beyond September 2018.

Access to Good Palliative Care: The Time is Now

In its 2014 report, Dying in America, the Institute of Medicine identified several areas for improvement in the care of those with life-limiting illness, including inadequate advance care planning and a lack of payment systems supporting high quality end of life care. Since then, we can point to two notable achievements in support the IOM report’s call for improvement: the proliferation of bundled payment programs and two E&M codes for advance care planning. I believe these developments will make it possible for more patients with serious illness to receive palliative care, as for the first time incentives are aligned between patients’ desires and how care is paid for.

Selecting the Optimal Post Acute Next Site of Care: A Primer for Physicians

Selecting the optimal next site of care (NSOC) after hospital discharge has emerged as a core skill for physicians in the era of value-based healthcare. The challenge is that few of us have received formal training in post acute care site selection. When I meet with physicians and discuss NSOC selection, they express a clear desire for guidance on discharge planning as they work with patients, caregivers and the healthcare team. Here is a framework to assist physicians in post acute care selection within the BPCI program.

Patient Identification for the BPCI Program

The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good

Before I started working for Remedy Partners as a Transitional Care Specialist assisting a Model 2 Acute Care Hospital Episode Initiator (EI) in identifying, engaging, and tracking BPCI patients during their episodes of care, one of the nurses preparing me for the job told me that “if you accomplish nothing else… get them to pick up the phone.” Her point was that if we are not able to speak to our patients after discharge then it will be difficult, if not impossible, to influence the outcome of that patient’s recovery. This was some of the best advice that I received but it assumed that we had already identified the patient as a BPCI patient.
