Recent changes to CMS reimbursement (Value Based Purchasing or VBP) processes have put a premium on ensuring patient satisfaction is achieved. Failure to meet baseline measurements in HCAHPS scores will result in decreased reimbursements for hospitals. In addition, 30-day readmission rates also will affect VBP scores.

Joint replacement surgeries have become common place – over a million performed per year. Paul M. Levy, MSN, BS, RN, ONC is excited to share his expertise in orthopedics to provide a better understanding of Total Joint Replacement Surgery:

  • Pre-operative diagnosis: When is it time for surgery? Alternative treatments?
  • Multiple joint replacements & the implications of each
  • The key to preventing post-operative complications/risks
  • All the options: Megaprosthetic replacements, fixations, joint revisions…
  • Achieving success: Rehabilitation goals and discharge planning

Recent changes to CMS reimbursement (Value Based Purchasing or VBP) processes have put a premium on ensuring patient satisfaction is achieved. Failure to meet baseline measurements in HCAHPS scores will result in decreased reimbursements for hospitals. In addition, 30-day readmission rates also will affect VBP scores. This recording will provide strategies to address the following areas that can impact VBP:

  • Co-morbidity – discussion of medical management of preexisting conditions
  • Pain Management – setting and meeting realistic pain management goals
  • Communication – focus on patient education and follow-up care
  • Readmission – focus on tools to reduce infection and post-operative complications

This recording will leave with you a clear understanding of the entire process from start to finish for total joint patients. This will in turn allow interdisciplinary healthcare professionals to help their patients better understand the process, have realistic expectations, and improved satisfaction following surgical interventions.


Objectives

  1. Evaluate the key indications for timing of joint replacement surgery.
  2. Compare treatment options for patients with severe joint pain.
  3. Analyze options for pre-operative education to make multiple learning modalities available to patients.
  4. Examine the necessary rationale for pre-operative testing.
  5. Summarize the Joint Commission SCIP Protocols as related to Total Hip Arthroplasty, Total Knee
  6. Arthroplasty, Hip and Knee Revisions, and Hip Fracture repairs (ORIF).
  7. Assess a multi-modal approach to post-operative pain.
  8. Determine preventive measures for the most significant post-surgical complications that can occur.
  9. Distinguish between the most effective planning strategies for patient success following hospital discharge.

Outline
