"The Economics of Surgery Avoidance"

Surgical avoidance improves outcomes & eases financial burden. Why do most COEs overlook this important quality metric?

Overtreatment is an entrenched and costly part of a fee-for-service health care system that has long incentivized procedures and surgery over more conservative care. To break this cycle, patients and self-insured employers should seek a value-based model that aligns incentives and rewards both surgeries AND less invasive treatments. 

In this report we’ll explore the following topics:

  • How bundled payments compared to fee-for-service payment models improve patient outcomes and reduces costly readmissions
  • Why surgical avoidance is a key quality metric when assessing surgical providers
  • How self-insured employers and their employees are left carrying the cost burden of unnecessary surgical procedures

Read on to learn more about how this approach can help your clients ensure appropriate care while saving money and reducing risk.
