CJR tests bundled payments and quality measures for an episode of care around total hip and knee replacements.
The goals of the program are:
[m]pirik would use Ortho[m]etrics to collect a pre-op PROM to get a baseline assessment of the patients health. The patient would also be enrolled in an Ortho[m]essage collection and begin receiving text message or email reminders about their care plan.
[m]pirik will use Ortho[m]etrics to collect surgical registry information about procedure. In addition, the nurse along the way will use Ori to send the patient’s friend or family text message updates about the surgical procedure.
The patient will continue to receive Ortho[m]essages about their care plan. These messages help the patient stay on track and optimize their treatment protocol. [m]pirik continues to collect PROMs using Ortho[m]etrics to monitor a patients progress. Using this data we can compare outcomes of patient’s that go to a skilled nursing facility and those patient’s that go directly home.
[m]pirik can gather objective data from a patient using Ortho[m]easure. Collecting range of motion, strength and gait patterns of a patient lets us correlate the patient’s subjective view (PROMs) with the objective data collected.
