Through global budgeted revenue for hospitals, hospital financial accountability for attributed Medicare beneficiaries, aggressive quality and population health goals, and tools to harmonize care delivery practices with non-hospital providers, the model aims to control cost growth statewide. For home care providers, this will mean opportunities to partner with hospitals in executing efficient care delivery across the continuum.
