The April 1 start of the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) payment model could spell bad news for the 60% of participating hospitals that are likely to lose money.
But it’s also a “tremendous opportunity” for home health agencies, according to CareCentrix CEO John Driscoll.
Hartford, Connecticut-based CareCentrix acts as a partner for home health agencies and serves health plans in managing the post acute benefit. Currently, the company is seeking to help home health agencies understand, and maximize, their role in the new payment model.
