Description

The challenges you face with patients undergoing outpatient total joint arthroplasty are steadily growing, especially in the era of Medicare’s bundled payments initiatives.

Ever evolving surgical techniques mean not every LE arthroplasty can be treated the same. There’s less time in the hospital, so you must be diligent to recognize and manage comorbidity dangers.

You’re pushed to find opioid-sparing approaches for your patients. Add to this Medicare’s new bundle payment model and you might find yourself overwhelmed, stressed, and ready to make a job change.

Don’t let the new Medicare value-based paradigm get the best of you and your practice.

Learn the best strategies for optimizing the episode of care by improving patient safety and outcomes. Better recognize and manage high-risk patients, avoiding readmission or a lapse in his or her recovery.

Find creative ways to stay within your budget under the 90 days allotted to your care. Learn all the ins and outs on how you and your facility can overcome the challenges and experience the reward from bundled payments.

Take your care and ultimately your facility to the next level in this timely recording.

Position yourself to succeed in the era of bundled payment initiatives for the total joint episode of care!
