Bundled Payments for Post-Acute Care:
Profiting from Alternative Payments and Clinical Redesign

A desire to position itself at the forefront of healthcare payment reform and be a catalyst for clinical redesign are two factors driving Brooks Rehabilitation's participation in Model 3 of CMS's Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative.

Today, having completed more than 1,000 bundled episodes for total hip replacements, total knee replacements and hip fractures, Brooks has reduced cost by 19 percent per episode, lowered readmissions to about 15 percent across its 60-day time frame, registered a patient satisfaction level of 94 percent and documented significant functional improvement.
