ArborMetrix showcases advanced episode analysis solutions at HIMSS17 in the Clinical & Business Intelligence Knowledge Center, Booth #6779-24
ANN ARBOR, MI (February 15, 2017) – With the reality of new and expanding bundled payment mandates from CMS and commercial insurers, physicians and other healthcare providers are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve outcomes. Programs such as the CMS Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BCPI) initiative reward hospitals for controlling care and costs across the continuum. To succeed, hospitals and providers need strategies and tools that deliver a clear picture of quality and financial outcomes across a clinical episode.
“Reaching clinical quality and financial targets for bundled pricing is driving providers to go beyond collecting and tracking quality and cost,” said Kurt Skifstad, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer, ArborMetrix. “It requires the use of new technologies that provide the insights needed to standardize and improve patient care.”
ArborMetrix provides comprehensive solutions for providers to succeed with new value-based payment models, including CMS bundled payments such as Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) and Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR). “Our solution helps hospitals monitor, evaluate, and manage the complete costs and quality of episodes of care,” Skifstad said. “We deliver analytics that quickly get to the level of clinical precision required to find actionable information that drives improvement.”
