This afternoon, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed a rule to implement new models to mandate bundled payments for cardiac care. This is the agency’s second-ever program requiring providers to accept set payments for an episode of care. Under the proposed program, hospitals would be accountable for the cost and quality of care for heart attack and cardiac arrest surgery patients during their stay and for the first 90 days after discharge. The program would take effect on July 1, 2017, for hospitals located in nearly 100 metro areas, and it would be steadily phased in across five years.

About NTOCC

The National Transitions of Care Coalition is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to addressing a serious U.S. health care issue: filling the gaps that occur when patients leave one care setting and move to another care setting. These transitions include patients moving from primary care to specialty physicians; moving or transferring patients from the emergency department to intensive care or surgery; and when patients are discharged from the hospital to home, assisted living arrangements, or skilled nursing facilities. The U.S. health care system often fails to meet the needs of patients during these transitions because care is rushed and responsibility is fragmented, with little communication across care settings and multiple providers.

Since 2006, NTOCC’s Advisors Council of over 30 organizations has shared a common goal of improving the quality of Transitions of Care. Working in conjunction with 450 Associate Member organizations and over 3,000 individual professional subscribers, NTOCC has developed tools and resources made available to everyone in the health care industry including providers, payers, patients and consumers. NTOCC’s mission is supported by the Partners Council made up of innovative companies leading critical change in health care coordination.
