Identifying Opportunities for Control as CCJR Model Implementation Nears

Healthcare Business Insights - Cost & Quality Academy —December 22, 2015

Healthcare Business Insights' Cost & Quality Academy reports on the opportunities associated with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CCJR) care model in January 2016. As implementation of the new model approaches, many hospitals, including Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), are working on identifying cost saving and potential coordination efforts that will ensure coordinated, comprehensive care is provided to patients.

To get a better sense of HSS' value management strategy, the Academy spoke with HSS' chief value medical officer, Catherine H. MacLean, MD, PhD. "As the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model goes into effect, acute care providers will be challenged to cut costs and maintain high quality care standards at the risk of lost reimbursement. For organizations looking to improve coordination of care to meet the requirements of the CCJR model, Hospital for Special Surgery’s strategy to first examine opportunities for cost-efficient and quality-focused improvements within its own facilities can serve as a good example."
