Alternative Payment Models: Yeah or Nay?

So where do we go with our healthcare system under the new administration? Will we move to Alternative Payment bundled-paymentsModels or will FFS continue? A recent study showed that bundled payments for orthopedic joint replacement appeared to be working at lowering costs while maintaining quality.

At the same time, it seems that Dr. Tom Price, the nominee for Secretary of HHS is not a fan of bundled payment.

Along with Gregg Masters and Doug Goldstein, we’ll be exploring some of these and many other issues about the next phase of healthcare reform during the coming months on PopHealth Week.

Let us know what you think.
