Missed Part III? View Factors to Consider When Undertaking BPCI Advanced


I’m Justine Olsen and I’m a Healthcare Strategy Analyst.

One of the other components related to BPCI Advanced that differentiates it from the original BPCI program is its impact on post-acute providers.

Right now, in the current BPCI program, the overwhelming majority of providers participating are post-acute providers. The program has been redesigned a bit for BPCI Advanced and this will impact the ability for these post-acute providers to essentially trigger an episode of care. And so that will greatly limit their ability to participate in the program moving forward.

Post-acute care facilities and organizations that have worked with them on BPCI participation in the past really need to take a look at these differences in how they’re administering BPCI Advanced to determine whether they want to consider participating, because it is vastly different.
