Philips Says Telehealth is Critical to Bundled Payments

June 17, 2015

 

If Medicare decides to expand its current bundled payment initiative, it should include ambulatory care—particularly telehealth services—for patients with multiple chronic conditions. This is one of the messages that Philips Healthcare conveyed in comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the proposed Medicare inpatient rates and policies for Fiscal Year 2016.

 

“It is our experience that substantial cost savings and quality improvements can be achieved through telehealth for patients with multiple chronic conditions in the ambulatory environment,” said Philips. The current Medicare bundled payment options are triggered by an inpatient hospital stay and do not include purely ambulatory patients.

 

The company also said that if Medicare chooses to expand bundled payments in any way, hospitals should be allowed to participate on a voluntary basis and be given substantial flexibility in defining the episode of care.

 

Philips made the recommendations in response to a CMS request for comments on potential expansion of its bundled payment care initiative, which pays hospitals a set fee to cover all services a patient receives for a medical condition during a specific episode of care.
