About the Conference:

In an effort to improve healthcare quality and outcomes for both patients and healthcare professionals alike, we are seeing a dynamic shift to Value Based Healthcare. As we transition from a traditional reactive model of healthcare, which strongly encompasses a fee -for-service approach, we are seeing a rise in the adoption of Bundled Payments in this healthcare model. As one form of an alternative payment model, this approach uses comprehensive payment systems to cover the cost of one solitary episode of patient care. This approach aims to create better efficiency and productivity in the overall management of patients.

Business Research Intelligence Network’s Bundled Payments Summit will have substantial and relevant dialogue surrounding healthcare’s adoption of Bundled Payment models. With topics led by industry thought-leaders, who are familiar and equipped to provide insight on the outlook of these models, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about practices and procedures that have been implemented to position yourself as a leader in this space. This summit will pro- vide you with the tools necessary to ensure success when preparing or considering a pivot to bundle payment options and enhancing care. This event will be in-person, and COVID-19 pre- cautions will be enforced. We hope you will be able to join us!

PANEL DISCUSSION: Bundled Payments: The Importance of Data for Episodic Care

Bundled Payment Models rely on timely and relevant data to make informed and precise

decisions when it comes to care practices. This data is integral to Bundled Payment models in order to evaluate procedures and processes that are adequate and appropriate for the patient. This panel will discuss the importance of facilities having accurate and informed data to make empirical evidence-based decisions and to ensure standard procedures are an overall benefit to the facility.

Managed Care Bundled Payments: Trials and Tribulations

Government bundled payments have been in place for over a decade. With a few exceptions, insurance companies and corporations are only recently entering this arena. A very small percent of hospitals have managed care or direct-to-employer bundled plans in place. This presentation will focus on what managed care insurance companies and employers are seeking when approaching or being approached by a health care provider to consider bundled payment arrangements. Bill will discuss the value equation, contract elements, true cost calculations, price negotiations, steerage, and navigation, as well as billing and collection challenges within traditional hospital settings. You will learn:

  • What makes you attractive to insurance and private employers for bundled payments
  • How to negotiate these contract elements
  • How to calculate true cost and true contribution margins
  • The pitfalls of fitting this square peg into the round hole for billing and collection purposes

TennCare’s Approach to Episodes of Care

States have a unique opportunity to leverage managed care organizations (MCO) to accelerate wide-scale adoption of value-based payment at the provider level. This session will examine the partnership between TennCare and its managed care organizations (MCOs) to advance Tennessee’s Delivery System Transformation goals, with a case study on how the state implemented its value-based Episodes of Care program, which utilizes a retrospective bundled payment model.

Workshop Session: Importance of Post-Acute Care Spending in a Bundled Payment Model

Bundled Payment Models focus on a more holistic approach to health care services, encompassing various comprehensive services as one treatment. Oftentimes, when pivoting to this model, post-acute care is often overlooked. This workshop will explicate how, we will discuss the importance of ensuring post actor care spending is allocated into your Bundled Payment Model, and how this approach can improve costs, quality, and outcomes.
