The way we pay for healthcare is changing. The days of fee-for-service are numbered, as CMS and other industry drivers push for pay-for-performance options, such as episodic or bundled payments. To adapt, hospitals and health systems need to change fundamentally; the shift to value-based care is about workflow as much as it is about policy. Care providers must become care managers, and disparate systems must learn to connect and collaborate. The fee-for-service world lacks the infrastructure for connecting a patient’s care team. Creating a care plan is the first step, but not the only one - the care plan must serve as a hub where providers meet to coordinate care.
On April 1, 2016, CMS is taking a giant step towards value-based care by requiring approximately 800 hospitals in 67 Metropolitan Statistical Areas to participate in a bundled payment program called Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR). Are you ready?

"PinpointCare plays two primary roles in our ability to manage risk and be successful. First and foremost, PinpointCare's platform helps manage the outliers—it's essential for case management. The second component is its ability to facilitate communication among 50+ partners and managing care across the continuum." -IBJI
We give providers control in managing patient care on an easy to use, automated platform.
Traditional healthcare IT does not address the fast-growing adoption of value-based reimbursement.
With PinpointCare, patients are involved in the development of their own care plan.
No two patients are identical in their situation, condition or needs. Create collaborative, personalized and proactive care plans for each patient with PinpointCare.
Communication is key. Provider collaboration during care transitions and patient engagement across the entire episode are essential to keeping patients on-plan.
Simple and efficient is best. Designed with the user in mind, PinpointCare puts the right information in the right place for the right clinician.
With the new bundled payment prototype for lower extremity joint replacement, Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement, hospitals in 67 designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) are mandated to participate. Joint replacement procedures are expensive, high-volume procedures that have significant cost variations, especially in the post-acute realm. The proposed gain sharing paradigm creates alignment, especially between hospitals and orthopedic surgeons, and a variety of post-acute providers that can significantly reduce the overall episode cost of care.

Using our turnkey solution, purveyors of bundled payments can connect and unite each patient episode with the provider’s entire acute and post-acute network and manage bundled payment models for lower extremity joint replacements.
