Digital engagement throughout the total joint replacement care episode helps you lower hospital readmissions, increase patient satisfaction and raise HCAHPS – the major requirements of CJR.

CMS's bundled payment model for knee and hip replacement is mandatory for most hospitals in 34 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs).

As of November 30, 2017, participation is voluntary for all low volume and rural hospitals in the original 67 mandated MSAs.

For hospitals participating in the CJR initiative:

  • 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.
