Summary of Respiratory Bundle Work

Premier Health Group (PHG) is participating in the CMS Model Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI-A) with focus on COPD and Simple Pneumonia.  

This model has allowed PHG to begin the development of a respiratory bundle to minimize cost and increase the quality of care for a 90-day episode.  Elements of this bundle focus upon evidence-based care paths, engagement of care management throughout the episode, open communication between providers, partnering with engaged post-acute care facilities, and the implementation of technology to drive enhancement. 

Small scale testing of the new processes will allow for collection of data to assist in the development of improved workflows that will be sustainable and utilized across the system.
