The Clinical Episode Payment (CEP) Work Group of the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) held its second in-person meeting on February 8, 2016 to define, frame, and develop preliminary recommendations for episode-based payment bundles for coronary artery disease (CAD) care (Cardiac Care sprint) and maternity care (Maternity Care sprint). Additional recommendations will be obtained during the March 1, 2016 bi-weekly CEP meeting. The members also suggested ways to refine the draft Elective Joint Replacement White Paper, and also discussed how they may engage with and better inform their respective networks and the provider community about CEP Work Group efforts through the social media platform Handshake.

To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
