Value-based care is here to stay, despite continual changes in governmental, regulatory, and financial aspects of care delivery. The current approach may be less prescriptive, but Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to promote quality while trying to contain cost.
Learn what hospitals need to know to be financially successful in the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) Advanced program, focusing on their cardiovascular (CV) patient population. Indeed, CV disease continues to contribute to the majority of inpatient stays as well as outpatient visits, though hospitals remain challenged to optimize margins while remaining competitive. Managing the CV patient care across the entire continuum is more important than ever, beginning
with a solid inpatient quality approach that continues post-discharge. This distance learning opportunity will focus on the role a CV service line must take in the care management process.
Examples of risk-adjusted care management strategies will be shared, highlighting both the processes and elements that lead to achieving clinical, operational, and financial milestones.
