Through the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced) Model, TMF Health Quality Institute aims to support health care providers and conveners with this voluntary value-based payment model from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). The Model tests whether linking payments for a Clinical Episode can reduce Medicare expenditures while also maintaining or improving quality of care. BPCI Advanced started on Oct. 1, 2018, for the first cohort of Participants and on Jan. 1, 2020, for the second cohort of Participants. The Model is expected to run through Dec. 31, 2023.
BPCI Advanced supports the CMMI with the design, development and maintenance of learning systems that will help accelerate successful outcomes by providing opportunities for sharing and collaborating on issues that are critical to the organizations participating in bundled payment models. TMF develops innovative shared-learning activities, such as affinity groups and action groups.
