In this 25-page report, Sultan, who advised participants in CMS's Acute Care Episode (ACE) demonstration, an earlier pilot of episodic payments, describes a bundled payment collaboration between two surgical groups that has not only reengineered every aspect of care but also generated significant savings for the groups.
