Further Proof That It Pays to Implement the Perioperative Surgical Home

Volume to value, the shift in the patient care paradigm and CMS payments that should, by now, be known to all providers and revenue-cycle managers, is still monopolizing the macro healthcare conversation.

The PSH is all about coordinated care that follows patients through an entire surgical episode, from the time the patient decides to undergo surgery through 90-days following his/her discharge from a hospital.

The latest PSH Cohort comprises some 88 institutions including academic medical centers, community hospitals, health systems, pediatric hospitals, and, physician groups that are piloting the new care model at their sites. And that number continues growing as the successes mount and more and more facilities become engaged.
