NEW 2016 Research Series: Commercial Bundled Payments

As the industry anticipates bundled pricing initiatives, Truven Health is studying total knee and hip joint replacement cost variation and drivers in the commercially insured population — using recent claims data gathered into simulated bundled payment episodes. Our results will be featured in a series of at least three bundled payment research briefs released in 2016. Available and downloadable briefs are featured at right.

Why It's Important

  • Providers need to know where they stand in relation to regional pricing, so they can take action to close cost, efficiency, and performance gaps that will affect them under bundled payment arrangements. 
  • Commercial payers need to identify the best ways to define bundles and predict what those definitions will do for patient care and costs.
