Event Recap

On March 22 the LAN hosted a listening session for payers to discuss the LAN’s episode design recommendations and garner real world payer perspectives on clinical episode payment models for elective joint replacement. Lewis Sandy highlighted the Clinical Episode Payment (CEP) Work Group’s draft Elective Joint Replacement White Paper. The audience posed comments and questions to the panel such as how the health IT vendor community can be used to help administer both prospective and retrospective bundles and how cost transparency for patients can align with retrospective reconciliation models. The members were encouraged to submit comments on the White Paper during its comment period ending on March 28 via the LAN website or the Handshake portal.


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.
