February 8, 2016
Healthcare economic policies are changing rapidly since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. Today’s healthcare system is transitioning from volume-based to value-, quality- and outcome-based. Today, there is a new focus on “bundled payments,” which reimburses based on specific clinical episodes rather than fees for service, with a heavy focus on clinical episodes that result in the highest costs, such as stroke.
As the new bundled payment programs become a reality, stakeholders need to prove clinical utility, operational efficiency and financial performance of technology. The goal is to challenge clinicians to develop innovative solutions to contain the cost of service while continuing to deliver high-quality care.
Registered nurses, with targeted training, are the secret weapon in the race for comprehensive care coordination.

Payers, including government agencies and insurers, are tying the quality and safety of patient care to reimbursements, making patient-centered care a necessity in all settings.
