Consensus report

Charting a course for Episodes of Care:
Payment programs in Medicare

In July 2020, Signify Health, a leading company in episodes of care payment programs and a convener in Medicare’s Bundled Payment for Care Improvement – Advanced (BPCI-A), engaged Leavitt Partners, a specialized health care consulting firm, and a team of alternative payment model experts from Brandeis University, to identify barriers, best practices, and opportunities to improving Episode of Care (EOC) models in the Medicare program, including the current BPCI-A.

The deliverable, which is embodied by this report, lays out consensus-based recommendations around what EOC models should look like in the coming years and what strategies can be employed to achieve the reforms. It consolidates the work of both groups and, as such, charts a concrete course for Medicare to better manage existing EOC programs and successfully expand them.
