Surgical Episode Management

Restoring Health...One Patient At A Time

Old Volume-based Model:

Compensation based on Surgical Volume

  • Only responsible for the surgical procedure and timely discharge
  • Not penalized for re-admissions
  • Satisfaction does not influence reimbursement

Conclusion: High readmission rates, excess costs, clinical risks



Managing the Surgical Episode

Moving to Value-based care

A Hospital’s Challenge

New Value-based Model:

Compensation based on a successful Surgical Episode

  • Responsible from “Pre-hab” through restored health
  • Penalties for readmission by CMS
  • Poor outcomes and patient satisfaction will negatively influence reimbursement & market share

Conclusion: Cost, quality & patient satisfaction matter



$100 Billion

Costs added to US healthcare system because of un-planned
surgery patient re-admissions.
