#BPsummit Conference Hashtag
The Bundled Payment Summit includes keynote addresses from policy makers. Emphasis will be given to national hospital and physician leaders with real-life implementation experience.Bundled payment is receiving close attention from policy makers and innovators as a way to lower healthcare costs and improve care quality. Early adoption has been slow and often difficult, but there has been a significant uptick of interest in the bundled payment model, and new programs continue to emerge across the country. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Innovation Center has fueled much of this interest with its Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative and the January announcement that over 500 participants will begin testing 4 models of bundling payments this year.
