April 29th, 2019 by Melanie Matthews

U.S. physician practices lose $125 billion every year due to poor billing practices, according to a new infographic by AllMeds. Unfortunately, many healthcare providers aren’t even aware that they’re leaving money on the table or of the steps they can take to maximize collections.

Medicare Chronic Care Management Billing: Evidence-Based Workflows to Maximize CCM RevenueSince the January 2015 rollout by CMS of new chronic care management (CCM) codes, many physician practices have been slow to engage in CCM.

Infographic: The Financial Impact of Value-Based Healthcare Contracts

April 26th, 2019 by Melanie Matthews

As health systems evaluate their ability to transition from fee-for-service medicine toward value-based care, they must understand the financial impact of their strategy, according to a new infographic by Lumeris.

The infographic examines key decision points and outcomes for a health system.

11 Profitable Value-Based Reimbursement Models: Lessons from Early AdoptersCMS’s ambitious agenda for moving Medicare into alternative payment models is driving the U.S. healthcare system toward greater value-based purchasing at a furious rate. Private payors also have pledged to continue to shift payments away from fee for service and into alternative payment models such as accountable care organizations (ACOs). Fortunately, many healthcare organizations are already exploring value-based payments—often a single innovation at a time—testing models that reward providers for meeting Triple Aim goals of improving patient experience and population health while reducing healthcare’s per capita cost.

11 Profitable Value-Based Reimbursement Models: Lessons from Early Adopters encapsulates nearly a dozen such approaches, from Bon Secours’ building of a business case for its multidisciplinary care team to the John C. Lincoln ACO’s deep dive into data analytics to identify and manage the care of high-risk, high-cost ‘VIP’ patients to ‘beat the benchmark’ to WellPoint’s engagement of specialists in care coordination.
