BPCI Overview (Part 1)

Here is the first of two articles providing an overview of the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative. While written for hospitalists, the overview and specific action steips apply just as well to surgeons, internists, and sub-specialists.

In this article, I describe bundled payment program structure and duration. The article discusses pricing and how physicians and hospitals bear risk. It concludes by covering opportunities to improve quality and generate savings.
