Wellbe Announces Webinar on the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) Model of Care

PSH model of care is re-engineered to improve patient care and outcomes while decreasing total cost.

Madison, WI, July 16, 2015 --(PR.com)-- OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar featuring Dr. Mike Schweitzer, Vice President of Healthcare Delivery Transformation at VHA Southeast, titled “Implementation of a Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH).”

The PSH is a patient-centered, physician-led system of coordinated care that guides patients through the entire surgical experience. From the decision for surgery to 30-90 days post discharge from a medical facility, the PSH model of care is re-engineered to improve patient care and outcomes while decreasing total cost. Learn how your physicians can earn financial incentives from both the PSH and the new CMS requirements for Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

What does SGR Reform and PSH have in common? Dr. Mike Schweitzer, a national leader in PSH, will show you how physicians can leverage a PSH to meet the new APM requirements. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) replaces SGR with a new performance-based payment system and financial incentives for participation in alternative payment models. The law requires that major changes occur by January 1, 2017 – the measurement year for penalties and rewards in 2019. Dr. Schweitzer will describe how to develop a PSH program in your organization. He will share strategies to engage physician leaders to prepare for MACRA or Value Based Payments through PSH.

This webinar will enable attendees to:

--Identify the burning platform for a PSH

--Define the elements of a PSH

--Outline the infrastructure needed to implement a PSH

--Build and sustain the metrics to support a PSH

--Learn how to engage physician champions
