ABOUT PROJECT

UAB Medicine is voluntarily participating in three Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Initiatives: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiac valve and, acute myocardial infarction. The health system also participates in the CMS Oncology Care Model.

According to UAB’s CFO Mary Beth Briscoe, when the health system began voluntarily participating in these new payment models, they did not have an overarching organization-wide strategy. Rather it was, in her words, “a series of tactical decisions that helped us move down a road of readiness for larger scale management of patients outside of our walls.”
