The Truth about Bundled Payments


Bundled payment programs improve patient care

Bundled payments help patients achieve better clinical outcomes and return to full health faster, while bringing benefits to every other part of the system along the way.


Specialists drive better bundled payment programs

Great specialists are the key to improving healthcare. When specialists have the opportunity to work within bundled payment contracts, they improve patient relationships and have more autonomy over the care process.


Ideal bundled payment programs follow a model

1. Assign a leader to be accountable for high quality outcomes
2. Engage specialists in process design
3. Use robust data analytics to guide program choice 
4. Develop innovations that improve care and the patient experience


Bundled payment programs create winners

With bundled payments, patients experience better outcomes at lower costs. Employers can provide employees with lower premiums. And specialists experience a greater degree of professional freedom with margins they can measure and manage.
