The challenge: Fully tapping into the benefits of bundled payments

Healthcare organizations continue to battle against the challenges of managing costs, producing quality outcomes and turning data into insights, and need a sustainable solution to help solve these problems. As our healthcare system is actively working to solve these issues through value-based care initiatives, bundled payments is one avenue to help enhance patient care while aiming to reduce overall spend.

A multipayment strategy can leave the door open for unnecessary costs, lack of collaboration and care efficiency, and increasingly disjointed patient experiences. But bundled payments for care improvement programs (BPCI) aim to right these wrongs by providing a single, comprehensive payment that covers all treatment involved in a patient’s episode of care. Yet, healthcare organizations are struggling to fully tap into the benefits of bundled payments due to limited resources, lack of a comprehensive evaluation across multiple program types and lines of business to determine areas of opportunity, and the absence of an efficient end-to-end solution.



The solution: A single, comprehensive payment that covers all treatment

We created Cerner Bundled PaymentsSM in collaboration with Enlace Health. Cerner Bundled Payments performs a detailed episode analysis and drills into claims activity, practice pattern variance and clinical quality indicators to help providers leverage data and insights to help scale bundled payment operations, advance efficiency of care, and impact quality and outcomes.

With commercial payers looking to collaborate in bundled payments arrangements and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services planning to make bundled payments mandatory in a few years1, how are you preparing for the future, today? Cerner is ready to uncover opportunities hidden within your data and put it to work for you with Cerner Bundled Payments – helping you provide insights into more coordinated care while simultaneously impacting healthcare costs.
