ICJR Interviews: How Quality Metrics Changed Under Bundled Payment
NYU Langone Medical Center’s Hospital for Joint Diseases implemented the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) program for total joint arthroplasty in 2013.
How has the hospital fared under this new payment system? More important, how did it change patient care?
Richard Iorio, MD, Chief of Adult Reconstructive Surgery, compares quality metrics from the first to the third year of the BPCI program in research he and his colleagues presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, “Improvement in TJA Quality Metrics: Year One vs. Year Three of the Bundled Payment for Care Initiative” (Paper 335).
