By Shawn Matheson Senior Regional Director, Partner Services Fusion5 1. CMS has a timeline. 2. BPCI-A is the mechanism. CMS’ Bundled Payment for Care Improvement – Advanced (BPCI-A) program is the mechanism for Physician Group Practices (PGPs) and Acute Care Hospitals (ACHs) to engage in OP TKA bundles and have the potential to: Share in the financial gains from reduced episode costs relative to Target Price. Improve patient experience and quality of care secondary to employment of optimization strategies and care management. 3. Time is of the essence. BPCI-A engagement begins through a non-binding application process that allows access to your historic data to determine your potential BPCI-A value proposition. Applications are expected to be submitted by June 15, 2019. 4. Fusion5 is the vehicle. Fusion5 is ranked nationally as the #1 BPCI-A Convener of orthopedic PGPs based on episode volume under management, the most technologically advanced Convener, and is the preferred partner of OrthoForum/OrthoConnect.
