How ‘Home-to-Home Time’ Supports the Goals of Bundled Payments

Addressing the tendency of fee-for-service to promote more spending requires changing the metrics that motivate clinician behavior away from volume as a primary focus. The DRG system, an early example of bundled payment, represents an attempt to solve the problem by paying hospitals a set amount for each hospitalization. DRG-based reimbursement incentivizes hospitals to keep costs down by eliminating unnecessary services and by shortening length of stay (LOS). Indeed, in the 30 years following the introduction of the DRG system, average hospital LOS nearly halved, dropping from 10.0 days in 1983 to 5.1 days in 20131,2.

The New England Journal of Medicine found that from 2007 to 2015, risk-adjusted rates of readmission for targeted conditions declined from 21.5% to 17.8%. Given that readmission are stressful for patients and adds significant cost to the healthcare system, providers have been looking for tools that identify when to intervene to attempt to prevent an unnecessary readmission.

Savings to Medicare in the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement initiative (BPCI) already dwarf the level of savings in Medicare’s ACO programs.
