#1 Digital Patient Engagement Platform For Bundled Payments
Partnered with leading health systems to improve patient care & outcomes
On September 10, 2020,
CMS announced 2 major changes to bundled payments:
1. Bundled payments will be mandatory by the end of 2023
2. In 2021, bundled payment participants are forced to sign up for service line bundles (e.g. all Cardiac procedures) instead of individual clinical episodes (e.g. just CABG)
“Surgery is often a confusing and overwhelming process for patients... Our patients can stay connected on their desktops, laptops and mobile devices with SeamlessMD so they are engaged with the recovery process both before and after surgery.”
Using Technology to Engage Patients and Reduce LOS
“Patient engagement technology like SeamlessMD is a recommended component in the ERAS® Cardiac guidelines. SeamlessMD has empowered our patients to be partners in their own care, leading to better patient experiences and clinical outcomes.”
The mean LOS and SSI rates for those enrolled versus not enrolled in the phone application was 4.4 days versus 6.4 days (p = 0.006) and 3.4% versus 11.3% (p = 0.019), respectively. The mean total cost of patients enrolled was $11,560; total cost of those not enrolled was $13,946 (p = 0.024).
SeamlessMD has clearly improved our ability to educate our patients both before and after their procedures. The enthusiasm surrounding this platform has translated into rapid implementation of our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery pathways. The SeamlessMD Team has also provided us with invaluable post-implementation support.
