Webinar: How to design bundled-payment systems for maximum clinical and financial success


In this audio/video webinar, “Physicians Design Success With Bundles,’’ George Beauregard, D.O., Chief Physician Executive of St. Luke’s Health Partners/Idaho, previously Chief Clinical Officer, Pinnacle Health, Harrisburg, Penn.; Jack Frankeny, M.D., CEO of the Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, and Bob Harrington, a director and senior adviser at Cambridge Management Group (, discuss how physicians and healthcare organizations can prosper in the bundled-payment world through collaboration-driven, physician-enabled change to meet new reimbursement challenges posed by public- and private-sector payers.

CMG has been heavily involved in assisting hospitals and physicians to redesign their bundled episodes of health services to hold and then grow market share.

This webinar demonstrates how physicians and hospitals can avoid being hurt in a race to the bottom of pricing in a newly commoditized market and how to meet the challenges posed to regional healthcare players by the entry of national brands, the shift to outpatient work and winner-take-all faceoffs.

The webinar shows how, among other things:

  • Physicians and hospitals can work together for common goals.
  • Orthopedic surgeons can play nice on a teamJ
  • Perfecting parts of bundles is not good enough.
  • Success depends on managing interactions among the parts of healthcare episodes.
  • Patient experience is at the center.
  • Effective physician leadership depends on activated colleagues.
  • To realign incentives and restore physicians’ enthusiasm.
