Improving Quality and Reducing Cost with Bundled Payments

Case Study: Baptist Health System


The Baptist Health System (Baptist) has been in front of innovative delivery models, participating in the Medicare Acute Care Episode demonstration and the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Initiative (BPCI).


Baptist partnered with Guidehouse to develop and implement its Medicare BPCI implementation strategy. A comprehensive gap analysis was conducted and a corrective action plan was developed. Guidehouse’s efforts yielded strategies to achieve savings and performance targets, while advising care redesign teams and improving clinical information sharing.

At Baptist Health System, we knew that to be successful in the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Initiative it would take a partner who would provide sound economic reasoning, diligent leadership, and transparent communication. Guidehouse has been our guide the entire way through BPCI and we’re made tremendous advancements together. With Guidehouse's assistance, Baptist Health System is prepared for the new payment landscape.
