    Starting April 1, 2016, all IPPS hospitals located in Clark, King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties (WA) will be enrolled in CMS’ new bundled payment initiative "Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacements (CJR)." These facilities will be on the hook for 90-day episode costs for individuals undergoing joint replacements, even if those costs are incurred outside their facility.

    Join Qualis Health as we review our initial analyses (including the reports distributed in January), take questions, and discuss potential quality improvement strategies to minimize negative financial impacts of the program.

    Intended Audience
    This webinar is intended for C-suite and quality improvement staff from IPPS hospitals located in Clark, King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties, WA.
