dc.description.abstractIncreasing numbers of government and commercial payers are considering a transition to “bundled payments.” A fixed amount is reimbursed for a specific diagnosis regardless of costs incurred while providing care. The sustainability of individual physician practices and health systems depends on proactive cost containment without sacrificing quality of care or patient safety. Because many acute care surgery programs receive salary or operational support from hospitals, active participation to achieve this goal is mutually beneficial. We hypothesized that creating a standardized surgeon preference card for operations common to an acute care surgery practice would reduce costs and improve reimbursement.eng
