Bundled Payments: Market Trends and Markers of Success

Bundled payments have emerged as a reimbursement method that supports health care providers’ efforts to redesign care and improve outcomes for specific patient populations and clinical episodes of care. They offer financial incentives for various providers to work with each other and patients to deliver care in a more coordinated manner.

The AHA, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE), hosted introductory webinars on what bundled payment and episodic care programs are, focusing on relevant research. This summary brief, Bundled Payments: Market Trends and Markers of Success, highlights key takeaways and learnings from this webinar series and discusses key questions, such as how bundled payments affect quality, cost and volume.
