The movement toward Episodic Payment Model (EPM) requires your organization to manage the care efficiently across the inpatient and post-acute care continuum. Regardless of the collaboration approach in your community, your organization needs continued participation by your providers to yield the appropriate level of delivery quality and efficient cost containment.

You need to derive a constant understanding of the patient’s status across the continuum. This varies with each organization base on your approach in the community if you are using local service partnerships or in house delivery of respective post-acute service silos. CHS can help with custom aggregation and executive dashboard to supplement your EHR in tracking the required matrix Secondarily, there will be a time period in which the patient is not in a facility and require remote care management of their clinical status to maximize your organizations profitability for that EPM for that patient.
