2013-02-25 23:54:37 - Perspectives on healthcare's emerging bundled payment trend will be examined during a March 13, 2013 webinar by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
SEA GIRT, NJ, USA, February 25, 2013 --- The bundled payment model, often viewed as a compromise between fee for service and capitation reimbursement, is being test-driven by more than 500 providers in what is believed to be the largest CMS demo ever launched. But what about the challenges of payment bundling --- contracting, claims processing, product design, and provider concerns?
"Moving Forward with Payment Bundling," a March 13, 2013 webinar from the Healthcare Intelligence Network, will provide perspectives on the emerging bundled payment trend, alternatively referred to as episode- or evidence-based payments or case rates. The 45-minute webinar is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Eastern time.

QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"Beyond CMS, private payors such as Geisinger Health System and Baptist Health have been testing bundled payments for specific medical procedures over the last decade. In addition, 14 percent of respondents to our 2013 Trends survey see bundled payments as having the greatest potential to reduce healthcare cost trend and improve care quality. This webinar will provide a framework for the consideration of bundled payments as an industry payment model."
