Cerner to launch EHR-agnostic tool for bundled payments

Mackenzie Garrity - Print  | 

Cerner and naviHealth, a provider of post-acute care management, have extended their partnership to create a new offering for Medicare's Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced program.

The two have been working together for the past five years to develop the offering, which is expected to launch in January 2020. Cerner and naviHealth's new value-based, EHR-agnostic offering is expected to support affordable and accessible healthcare that is centered around the patient.

Cerner has restructured its operating model to focus on pursuing break-through innovation. With this new offering, Cerner will be able to help organizations advance clients' success, provide better health experiences and outcomes and become a partner in post-acute care.

Today, naviHealth is active in the BPCI Advanced program, providing services in 22 states to more than 140 hospital partners. The company will leverage Cerner's HealthIntent data platform to use against its predictive assessment tools, care management platform and care navigation expertise.

Under BPCI Advanced, providers agree to a pre-defined reimbursement amount for 32 CMS-defined episodes of care or chronic conditions. These bundled payments aim to bring cost transparency to healthcare.
