Bundled Episode Payment and Gainsharing Demonstration Project Weslie Kary, MPP, MPH Program Director Integrated Healthcare Association Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality 2010 Annual Meeting September 27, 2010
Overview • What is bundled or “episode” payment? • Why do it? • IHA bundled episode and gain-sharing demonstration and evaluation plan
What is bundled (episode) payment? • A single prospective price for all services needed by the patient over an episode of care. • Defined on parameters of time and services. Source: Center for Healthcare Quality and Payment Reform, Transitioning to Episode-Based Payment (http://www.chqpr.org)
Why bundle? Problems with current payment options… • Fee for service: rewards volume of services, not appropriateness or coordination of care. • Global capitation: shifts too much risk to providers, creates incentive for risk selection. • Pay-for-performance: when framed as quality bonus, does not move enough money. Is bundled payment a workable compromise?
Some people think so… CMS ACE Demonstration • Geisinger ProvenCareTM Prometheus PaymentTM • PPACA… • Expand ACE Demo, include post-acute care by 2013 • Demonstrate in Medicaid population by 2012 • Bundle payments in ACO
IHA Demonstration Project • Focus: Major procedures and acute conditions, orthopedic first cardiac and other. • First participants: Monarch HealthCare, Cedars-Sinai, Hoag Hospital, Saddleback Memorial, Tenet, UCLA, Aetna, Blue Shield, CIGNA, HealthNet all California. • First populations: Commercial PPO HMO, Medicaid Managed Care and Medicare Advantage. • Episode definition: Date of surgery + 90 days, includes acute and routine follow-up, complications within 90-days, related readmits. 6
Demonstration evaluation • What happened? Was model scalable? What facilitates success, what bodes failure? (RAND: Susan Ridgely, Peter Hussey) • Was quality of care for orthopedic patients maintained compared to control hospitals? (U.C. San Francisco: Kevin Bozic, Steve Takemoto) • Did efficiency go up, costs of care go down compared to baseline period? (U.C. Berkeley: James Robinson, Samuel Tseng) More info: http://www.iha.org
