Market Intel: Unravelling Bundled Payments: A New Chapter In Reimbursement For Orthopedics

Executive Summary

The shift in health care reimbursement from a fee-for-service model to one which is based on value and an emphasis on accountability for care quality and health care costs is here to stay. In orthopedics, as in other therapy sectors, physicians are having to grapple with new alternative payment models and meeting the requirements that come with these new reimbursement methods. Strategies for adopting these value-based systems, including challenges and trends, and what it all means for surgeons, dominated much of the discussion at this year's American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting in San Diego.

Emphasis on value strategies was a significant medtech theme at this year's JP Morgan Healthcare Conference bonanza.
