Title: Policy Brief. Will Bundling Work in Rural America? Analysis of the Feasibility and Consequences of Bundled Payments for Rural Health Providers and Patients. (September 2011)
Abstract: This policy brief evaluates how changing payment structure by bundling reimbursement payments for acute- and post-acute care episodes may affect existing and emerging relationships between rural and urban-based providers. It assesses the financial and quality challenges - and potential unintended consequences for rural providers and patients - of implementing this payment structure. It explores the possible impact on quality of care delivered under a facility-physician bundled payment system, suggests measurement opportunities to evaluate the quality of care delivered under a facility-physician bundled payment system, and describes potential modifications to current bundling proposals that will help address rural-specific issues. The brief includes references.
