There's no denying that reimbursement changes are top of mind for hospital and program leaders, most notably, Bundled Payments and the inevitable changes this new financial structure will bring to cardiac programs, where such models are being newly-implemented. The goal of increasing the quality and coordination of care while lowering cost is not an easy one, especially for hospitals unprepared to deliver care (and receive payment) for EPISODES of care, rather than discrete services.
This new system will continue to change the way care is delivered, hospitals should ACT NOW in preparation for the October 2017 launch of bundled payments and Episode of Care Models for both AMI (heart attack) and CABG (open heart surgery).

What makes our Bundled Payment services unique?
Corazon can work with you to position your hospital for success during this time of change using a phased approach:
All programs will need to address this change. Cardiovascular services lines with positive outcomes will need to proactively maintain best-practice, while programs with poor outcomes will need to develop new practices to elevate quality scores.
Corazon can help you understand the financial, strategic, and operational impact of bundled payments through our phased approach to Episode Payment Model Preparedness.
