You are aware of the current trend to reduce costs by focusing providers on performance measurements that improve medical care.

You are also aware that patients and their families want more assurances about the benefits of joint replacement.

Traditional hip replacement surgery amounts to nearly

1,200,000

procedures per year in Canada, US and EU

Experience vs Judgment venn Diagram

They largely remain dependent on surgeon experience and subjective judgments of soft tissue balancing

Meanwhile researchers report

Mean costs of revision surgery are

$54,55313

and

can reach as high as

$69,38013

with length of stay averaging 6.2 days and reaching as high as 11.8 days13

Studies indicate the mean costs for readmissions within 30 days of primary THA are

$17,103

per readmission14

and the mean costs following revision THA are

$27,272

per readmission14

Dislocations cause

16%

of hospital readmissions within 90 days of hip replacement surgery4

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), 2610 U.S. hospitals lost an average of 0.63% of total Medicare and Medicaid (MM) reimbursements averaging

a loss of $164,000 per hospital in 201515.

Additionally, the upcoming bundled payment/penalty system currently being piloted by CMS will forego payments for readmissions and instead levy penalties.

Centers performing 500 THAs per year could face penalties of close to

$1 million per year

 

 

Paving the Way for Bundled Payments 

With the introduction of bundled payments, health providers must look at ways to reduce spending variation associated with an episode-of-care in order to avoid potential penalties for inconsistent outcomes.
