Building a Successful Episode of Care Model

Sep 6, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT
Virtual Event

On July 1, 2017 Medicare will begin a 4-1/2 year Episodes Payment Model pilot project focused on episodes of care involving Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG), surgical hip and femur fracture treatment (SHFFT), and cardiac rehabilitation. The final rule for the program assumes a level of collaboration, electronic connectivity and information sharing between disparate providers that does not yet exist in most medical communities. Join us to learn how one Acute Care hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Parkview Health, is dealing with these challenges head-on.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define needed/preferred relationships for Episode of Care (EOC) model
  • Define time table to build successful relationships with needed partners for EOC
  • Discuss how to tailor agreements based on your market
