CMS's new bundled payment program for knee and hip replacement. 

What to know about Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

CMS's initiative Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement affects approximately 800 hospitals in 67 metropolitan statistical areas.

  • CMS requires hospitals to bundle expenses before, during and after surgery.

  • A hospital must be in the 30th percentile or above nationally on readmissions (30-day), complications (90-day) and HCAHPS. 

  • Risks and rewards are associated with high value. 

Episode-specific patient education for joint replacement surgery reduces average length of stay and daily care cost, drives hospital revenue and increases patient satisfaction and HCAHPS scores. 

Episode-based Intervention for joint replacement surgery has a proven financial impact.
