With all of the changes affecting the healthcare industry and healthcare providers, some of the most dramatic shifts have occurred in the realm of orthopedic surgery and the subsequent rehabilitation.
This is due to the shift of Medicare dollars away from fee-for-service medicine when it comes to paying for knee and hip replacements and the entry of the “bundled payment” system into the marketplace.
Under the relatively new value-based reimbursement known as the “Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement” model, CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid) is now paying for an “episode of care.”
The effects of this new system are being felt all across the healthcare spectrum.
Healthcare providers are being tasked with the responsibility to offer a comprehensive and holistic health and rehab program in the shortest possible period of time, with the objective of providing a quick return to home.
In this climate, Putnam Ridge has quickly established itself as a premier destination for orthopedic rehabilitation and offers a robust program of rehabilitation designed to ease the patient back into the community in the quickest possible time frame.
