Webinar: Bundled Payments Model 3 Deep Dive

When: Thursday, February 9, 2012  |  3:00pm – 4:15pm ET


In response to a number of questions and requests we have received, this webinar will focus on Model 3, the Post-Acute Episode. The session is designed for Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers seeking additional information about how Model 3 works and a better understanding of the opportunities for PAC providers within the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative to achieve better care, better health and lower costs for their patients through care redesign.  The webinar will review the construction of the Model 3 Post-Acute Episode and is designed to assist organizations who submitted Letters of Intent (LOIs) for this model as well as PAC providers who did not submit an LOI but are seeking additional information about the role of PAC in BPCI.  The session includes an opportunity to ask questions interactively over the phone in addition to live Chat and will:

  • Present the value proposition for Post-Acute Care providers participating in BPCI
  • Provide a deep dive on the construction of Model 3 episodes
  • Highlight key differences between Model 3 and Model 2 which also includes Post-Acute Care  in the episode
  • Clarify common areas of confusion


Organizations that have submitted Letters of Intent for Model 3, business and clinical leaders from  Post- Acute Care provider organizations, representatives from public sector organizations providing post acute services and those seeking additional information on opportunities for PAC providers within the BPCI initiative.
