New Report: Significant Variation in Expected Savings per Hospital in BPCI Advanced

ArborMetrix - May 23, 2019 9:22:00 AM

Findings Have Implications for Current and Prospective BPCI-A Participants

ANN ARBOR, MICH., / MAY 23, 2019 — The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is accepting applications for the next cohort in its Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced Model now through June 24. As prospective and current participants prepare to apply and participate in Model Year 3, they should understand the positive or negative effect BPCI-A target price methodology could have on their program results from day one.

CMS designed the program to encourage broad participation with the intention to reward improvement over time. Although CMS understandably relies on a hospital’s past performance to set target prices, it does not consider how two key factors affect a hospital’s true performance in a given episode: (1) Variability from limited sample sizes and (2) Hospital-specific trends through and beyond the target performance period.

ArborMetrix to Present During the CMSS Summit on the Future of Clinical Registries

ArborMetrix - Apr 26, 2019 8:30:00 AM
ANN ARBOR, MICH. / APRIL 26, 2019 — At the CMSS Summit on the Future of Clinical Registries on May 9, the medical specialty society and association community will discuss critical questions around how clinical registries support efforts to improve quality and value, how registries can capture important data from patients and others, and the role registries play in the broader healthcare ecosystem. Ultimately, it is all about the vision for the specialty society registry of the future.

The way we see it, clinical registries have the promise to be remarkable tools to create impact and action in the face of the field’s greatest challenges. But despite having loads of healthcare data, many medical specialty registries are experiencing low participation levels and engagement, and a lack of meaningful, measurable results in advancing care and improving patient outcomes.

ArborMetrix’s session during the CMSS Registry Summit will describe how to leverage four building blocks to become a registry master-builder and create lasting value and engagement.

  • Acquire: Getting the data
  • Organize: Sorting the garbage from the gold
  • Assemble: Transforming data into value with analytics
  • Act: Leveraging evidence to drive results

Session Details


Date: Thursday, May 9
Time: 7:30 - 8:20 a.m.
Location: Alpine 1 Room, Swissotel, Chicago
