Don't Bungle Bundled Payments
For most hospitals and health systems, a change to a bundled payment is fraught not only with financial risk, but also the risk of a change in work patterns and culture within and outside the organization. Like a marriage, such massive changes shouldn't be entered into lightly. Through simulations such as these, changes can be made over time and don't have to be so jolting and risky.
After all, you can't afford to ignore the demand for better value in healthcare, allowing other systems to leapfrog yours in the transformation.
