UHC's Bundled Payments Demonstrate Improved Outcomes, Reduced Costs -

UnitedHealthcare’s value-based Spine and Joint Solution program for knee, hip and spine procedures demonstrated fewer hospital readmissions and complications following surgery, while generating savings of ~$18MM for participating employers. Specifically, the bundled payment program was part of a 22% reduction in hospital readmissions and 17% fewer complications for joint replacement surgeries vs. nonparticipating facilities. For spine, readmissions were reduced by 10% with 3.4% fewer complications vs. nonparticipating facilities. (UnitedHealthcare, 5/9/18)
