Over the past 10 years, bundled payments have grown in popularity due to their ability to improve clinical outcomes while controlling costs. Among the earliest implementations of bundles were “Centers of Excellence” (or CoE) programs, where self-insured employers directly contracted with brand name providers for certain high acuity services. While generally effective, relatively few members would take advantage of these arrangements due to their limited clinical scope and stringent requirements. In this session, speakers will give an overview of best practices to consider when launching bundled payment programs across your provider network. Speakers will also share recent success stories where purchasers have deployed bundles across a wider set of services, thus generating a greater impact on quality and cost.
