The Alternative Payment Model (APM) incentivizes practitioners to provide high quality and cost-efficient care. APMs are complex and that is why we put together a four-part educational series based on Medicare data. Each part will teach CRNAs how the anesthesia care we provide ties into APMs and affects our reimbursements.
MODULE 2 Risk Analysis of Five Alternative Payment Models and Two Accountable Care Organizations
MODULE 3 Guidance and Recommendations Based on Five Alternative Payment Models and Two Accountable Care Organizations
The purpose of this program is to enhance individual understanding of the acute and recovery phases of substance use disorder with knowledge of how to create an anesthesia care plan that supports the patient's recovery efforts.
CRNAs will understand the structure of different APMs, the amount of anesthesia costs included in different APMs, and how to think about preliminary risks and opportunities for potential partnerships with APMs.
