Drive Costs from the Orthopedic Care Continuum

THE PATHWAY TO BETTER OUTCOMES...

FOR THE PATIENT, PRACTICE AND HOSPITAL

ViiMed’s Orthopedic Pathway combines a proven care plan created by leading orthopedic hospital–Hospital for Special Surgery–with our digital workflow. This unique collaboration automates and personalizes joint replacement care coaching for patients and provides care teams with insight into potential risk factors.

  • Lower surgery cancellations up to 70%
  • Save 24 hours/week in Peri-Operative Education
  • Reduce non-reimbursable uneventful follow-ups by 50%

This 3-year collaboration between Hospital for Special Surgery and ViiMed created a flexible digital solution that addresses some challenges that come with the shift to value-based care–specifically bundled payment procedures.

Now your organization can take advantage of this innovative approach to manage joint replacement patients.

Are you using technology to maximize your bundled payments?

``At St. Luke's, we chose to invest in the right technology to maximize the bundle, because we knew if we didn't we would pay more for complications.`` Denise McGinley Head of Ortho, St. Luke's

THE CHALLENGES BPCI / CJR — IT IMPACTS EVERYONE

CMS’s BPCI and CJR bundled payment programs are designed to encourage collaboration between hospitals, physicians and post-acute care providers to improve efficiencies throughout an episode of care.

Impact on the Hospital

Assumes responsibility for overall cost of care at a fixed rate

  • Looks to reduce costs along the continuum of care
  • Needs to improve outcomes and satisfaction to avoid CMS discounts
  • Incurs costs associated with higher complication and readmission rates
Impact on the Surgeon and Practice

A surgical practice has more patients than ever and is expected to do more with the same resources

  • Has responsibility for all phases of patient care
  • A dramatic increase in demand for their time
  • Difficulty keeping tabs on patient progress
  • Becomes a patient and family call center
Impact on Patient and Family

Patient satisfaction scores rely on a positive experience

  • Limited insight into the process leads to poorer satisfaction
  • Progress can be affected by limited visibility
  • Higher risk of complication can lead to readmission
