9  Clinical Service Line Alignment  Clinical Pathway Development  Benchmarking Complex Procedures  Benchmarking Episodes of Care  Modeling Episodes and Procedures  Creating Bundled/Performance Contracts  Adjudicating Bundled Claims  Reporting/Managing Utilization

10  Utilization Reporting Across Continuum  Health System and Payer Driven  IP, OP, Physician, Ancillary Providers  Data Aggregation in Multiple Delivery Sites  Clinical Data from Physicians, Rehab, and Home Care  Financial Data Across the Continuum  Revenue Cycle Calculations & Transactions  Contracting, Claims Management, Adjudication  Patient/Payer Membership Management

11  Create and Model Bundled Contracts  Develop and Manage Combined Charge Masters and Fee Schedules  Aggregate Bundled Claims and Payments  Calculate Performance Payments  Provide Timely, Accurate and Transparent Clinical and Financial Reporting

12  Patient Enrollment and Eligibility  Contract Modeling across Continuum  Maintenance of Multiple CDM/Fee Schedules  Case Management/Referral Services  Claim Re-Pricing/Clearing/Payment  Dispute Resolution/Collections  Risk Sharing, Gain Sharing, Treasury Services

16 Answer  All of our Facilities  All Active Medical Staff  Contracted Ancillary  Physicians and Extenders  Facilities (Rehab, ASC, etc)  Home Care, Hospice RCM Solution  Provider Demographics  TINS and Sites  Facility Identifiers  CMS Information  RCM IT Information  Clearinghouse Info

17 Answer  Cardiovascular  Orthopedic/Joints  Spine Surgery  Stage 2 Cancer RCM Solution  Physician Roster  Sites of Service  Services Benchmarks  Model Claims  Contract Terms  Fee Schedules, Codes

18 Answer  The Hospital Employees  Aetna Fully Insured  United ASO Employers  Tri-Care RCM Solution  Contract Terms  Payment Method  Enrollment Database  Patient Demographics  Patient Benefits

19 Answer  PCMH – Primary Care  Episode of Care  Medicare SS  Blue Cross Performance based grouper outcome RCM Solution  Charge Coding  Calculation Engine  Contractual Discounts  Payment Posting  Performance Measures  Distributions

20 Answer  Will vary by Payer  Likely % Medicare  Performance-based  Individual Provider  Whatever we can RCM Solution  CDM & Fee Schedules  By Provider, By Contract  Grouper and EBM performance calculator  Medicare Values for all ACO Providers

21 Answer  Across Care Continuum  Primary Care  Specialty Care/OP  Acute Care/IP  Sub-Acute  Home Care/Follow up RCM Solution  Capture Claim Activity  Report Care Variance from Benchmarks  Facilitate interfaces to Providers in ACO

22 Answer  Receive Claims from Providers and Facilities  Send Claims or Claim Summaries to Payers  Receive Payments from Payers RCM Solution  Bundled Claims Scrubbing  Bundled Claims Clearing  Calculation Engine  Performance-based  Payment Posting  Variances

23 Answer  From the Claims Data  From Payer Data  From Clinical Data RCM Solution  Standard Reports from ACO RCM Database  Payer Report Validation  External Data Imports  Ad Hoc Reporting

24 Answer  We will for the Transactions side  The Medical Staff will run the care delivery management RCM Solution  Implement a Platform that will manage these transactions

25  Be Sure that the Revenue Cycle Team is an Integral Part of the Health System discussions about Integrated Care  In a nice way, remind leadership that this Reform is Revenue Cycle Management reform  Take an Inventory of your Hospital Patient Accounting, Contract Management, and RCM reporting capabilities  Identify the likely Providers (Physicians and other facilities) that will be a part of your Integrated Network  Talk with your big Payers about their Interests  Monitor CMS ACO Progress

26  Identify missing parts in existing RCM IT infrastructure  These will likely be in complex contract management, cost reporting, CDM and Fee Structure Management, etc.  Research opportunities with existing RCM IT vendors  Do they have platforms to integrate the new RCM functionalities for providers across the care continuum? What are their plans?  Explore the Market for New or Added Solutions  Look for platforms that accommodate the entire continuum  Remember the new requirements – enrollment, bundled modeling, bundled claim adjudication, treasury, etc.

27  Present your researched RCM Functionality Plan to the Health System Integrated Care Leadership Group  Incorporate the Clinical Benchmarks, EBM Standards, and Services (CMS ACO, Cardiovascular, Ortho, etc.) under consideration by the Clinical Leadership  Determine what Services and Payment Models are being considered by your major Payers  Using your new processes, Model the potential arrangements that are being discussed by the ICLG  Bring the Information back to the Leaders for Discussion  Sign a Contract & Manage the Transactions

28  The Shift from FFS will likely be gradual and incremental  There is sufficient time to design your plans  But, it will take time culturally and operationally.  Clinical Change Management will require consensus building and professional compromise  Revenue Cycle Change Management will require operational retooling, distributed accountability, and technical upgrades to maintain a shared RCM Platform  The Market Winners will be Ready for the Change
