Survey: Hospitals aren’t ready for Medicare bundled payment program



Hospitals may not be ready to handle the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services new bundle reimbursement payments for hip and knee replacement procedures, according to a report from Intralign.

In an online survey, Intralign said hopsitals reported an average grade of 55% out of 100% in rating their preparedness for CMS’s new Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement datasets. 

Intralign reported that the biggest issues hospitals are facing are underdeveloped post acute care networks, poor internal information systems weak in modeling, tracking and reporting capabilities and undefined performance metrics.
