5 Keys to Managing Total Cost of Care for Acute Episodes
With 50% of Medicare spending taking place in acute episode of care to 90 days post-discharge, having a value-based care strategy in place for when a patient admits to the hospital is essential. At Sound Physicians, we have learned many lessons in developing our value-based care strategy through managing over 400,000 episodes and $10 billion in at-risk spend. This webinar discusses our 5 keys to managing total cost of care for acute episodes, which help improve care continuity, lower overutilization and adverse outcomes, and support risk-adjustment and quality star ratings.
Elective Surgery, Status, and Throughput
Elective surgery, especially outpatient surgery is continuously involving in technology, outcomes and what we call that time in the facility. Medicare with its 2 MN rule and its planned elimination of the inpatient only list has only further complicated this reality. Learn the evolution of outpatient surgery and how payers have adapted to those changes, how to consider appropriate status for elective surgeries and how that status can change as cases progress, and challenges to efficient throughput and possible solutions.
SNFs: It’s Time to Deliver More Complex Care. Are you Ready?
The paradigm of post-acute care is shifting, with hospitals, payers, and patients looking for alternatives to skilled nursing stays. To thrive in this changing landscape, SNFs must successfully care for sicker residents with more complex needs. Your success now requires an innovative, multidisciplinary approach and a higher level of physician engagement.

While a minority of hospital patients spend time in the ICU, care for those patients is costly and labor intensive and can have a large impact on a hospital’s length of stay. Understanding key obstacles to discharging from the ICU, and ways to manage those are important to improve throughput in your hospital.
