Programs to Improve Post-Discharge Care More Common in CJR Hospitals

Hospitals participating in the Medicare Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model are more likely to implement programs to improve post-discharge care and link surgeon compensation to cost and quality, according to a survey of surgeons reported online by the Journal of Arthroplasty. The survey asked members of the Hip Society about care delivery and compensation practices at the hospitals where they perform most of their total joint replacements. Medicare implemented the CJR bundled payment model for hip and knee replacement in 800 hospitals in 67 metropolitan statistical areas in April 2016.
