TJA Orthopaedic Travel Surgery
Bundled payments to reduce costs and improve outcomes aren’t a new concept in orthopaedics. We’re discussing a new innovation in orthopaedic care- employers using a bundled system to directly purchase health care for their employees. Travel for surgery, will we see more of this in the future? In this episode of the No Bones About It, host Bryan Combs discusses the University Hospitals Orthopaedic Travel Surgery program with Kelly Anne McCrone, BSN, ONC, Rita Hall, MSN CNS, Erica Sevinsky, RN, ONC. Helping to meet the demands of employers and insurers with a move toward value based care, University Hospitals along with other health care systems in the Employers Centers of Excellence Network operate as sites for outpatient procedures. Our guests share the background and the advance preparations involved for a travel surgery. They also share the requirements needed to become a surgical center of excellence.
