This June, THCA is highlighting Alternative Payment Models under Managed Care. The C to C article titled Alternative Payment Models are here: Are you ready? uses the Comprehensive Joint Replacement (CJR) Bundling Project as an example and discusses the keys to success when participating in Bundled Payment Programs.





Since controlling unnecessary rehospitalizations is critical to cost containment in Bundled Payment Programs, some helpful tools and resources are available below.


The Elements for Effective Care Transitions  and Assessing and Developing Clinical Capabilities were developed by the Rehospitalization Subcommittee of the AHCA Clinical Practice Committee.
