Cerner and naviHealth recently announced a five-year partnership to launch a value-based care offering to support the Bundled Payments For Care Improvement Advanced Program (BPCI Advanced) for Medicare. Cerner and naviHealth currently work together to streamline electronic work flows for post-acute discharge services.
For the new offering, naviHealth is combining its operational, technological, and clinical expertise and solutions with Cerner’s HealtheIntent® big data platform. The new value-based offering will be interoperable with multiple electronic health records.
BCPI Advanced encourages medical practitioners to redesign care delivery with an eye to improved outcomes and cost reduction. It does this by pointing clinical professionals to best practices, reducing variation in standards of care, and ensuring the provision of clinically appropriate levels of service through the episode of care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have pre-determined reimbursement for 32 defined episodes of care or chronic conditions to which provider organizations agree. The anticipated launch date is January 2020, when CMS releases the next round of value-based care offerings.
Cerner has been providing health care and information technology products and services for 40 years. naviHealth has been providing post-acute care management support for 19 years. It is a large convener, or risk sharing partner, in the BPCI Advanced program. It provides services in 22 states to more than 140 hospital partners, and manages billions of dollars of spend annually.
