5:00 PM Integrating Advanced Data Analytics to Optimize Bundled Payment & Reduce Financial Risk

Although bundled payments have become increasingly embraced among providers, delivering on the anticipated clinical outcome while keeping costs contained can prove quite the challenge. In 2014, Avamere Health Services was awarded model 3 convener status under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Bundled Payment Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative. In this session we will discuss the use of advanced analytics to aid in the network monitoring, claims management and episode management for that program. The efforts showed strong results in improved outcomes (e.g. reduction in re-hospitalization rates) as well as robust net financial gain from the bundling reconciliations.)

Join this session to gain insights into:
•How Avamere is using analytics and patient engagement to optimize bundled payments related to high risk procedures
•Successfully deploying risk stratification techniques at critical transition points  to identify high-risk patients who may jeopardize the level of financial reimbursement 
•Identifying effective patient engagement strategies and creating a high-value network of business partners to ensure that positive outcomes are not compromised by poor post-acute care or non-compliance
