A Database Month event

Medicare's Bundled Payments for Care Initiative (BPCI) is the largest Medicare payment innovation program. Bundled payments involve paying a 'package price' for all the services required to treat an episode of care. Unlike the current 'fee for service' model, providers will assume financial risk and have financial incentives to improve efficiency and patient outcomes.

Currently, more than 5,000 providers have applied to this program, representing $47 billion of Medicare spending.

Archway Health Advisors is building a platform that helps providers like hospitals and nursing homes manage their bundled payments program. Analyzing complex Medicare claims payment data is critical to understanding the risks of participating in the bundled payment program.

We are using the open source HPCC Systems platform to power the data management and analytics required to successfully manage the risks and look for care improvement opportunities. In this presentation, we will review our HPCC Systems implementation and provide some examples of the analysis that we are providing our customers.

    I look forward to hearing how you analyzed Medicare claims data and what insights you obtained from it. We too are using Medicare claims data to inform our offerings, it would be great to exchange experiences!

    Eric, please try to make Scholastic the permanent spot to host all of Database Meetups. It is by far the best venue and apparently more people show up in that venue than in other locations.

    • Eric David B.

      I too wish that venue-availability would permit a consistent location, but that is unfortunately not a possibility with the frequency of events that we organize.
