Surgical site infections (SSIs) cost an estimated $27,288 per case. An analysis of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program data at the University of Rochester Medical Center suggested that rates of SSIs could be lowered in comparison with both peers and baseline. The aim of this study was to reduce the number of SSIs to zero through the implementation of a "bundle" or a combination of practices. Meetings were held with the multidisciplinary care team that includes surgeons and staff from pediatric pharmacy, pediatric infectious diseases, anesthesia, and nursing to create a care bundle for all pediatric orthopaedic surgery patients...

Care bundling is a strategy for reliably delivering quality, evidence-based care for patients undergoing treatments known to be accompanied by potential risks. This article reviews the purpose, types, and components of care bundles, as well as the process for development and implementation.

Care coordination that improves patient care and patient outcomes is becoming increasingly necessary as bundled payment programs are developed. Rather than looking at each aspect of the patient's care, the entire care continuum from preoperative preparation through completion of the episode will become the norm. The length of the episode of care may be 30 days or as long as 90 days. The transition to different care providers during that episode requires information sharing. This is best accomplished by a technology platform that allows for real-time information sharing...

Fragmented and uncoordinated care is the third highest driver of U.S. healthcare costs. Although less than 10% of patients experience uncoordinated care, these patients represent 36% of total healthcare costs; care management interaction makes a significant impact on the utilization of healthcare dollars. A literature search was conducted to construct a model of care coordination for elective surgical procedures by collecting best practices for acute, transitions, and post-acute care periods. A case study was used to demonstrate the model developed...

Factors driving healthcare transformation include fragmentation, access problems, unsustainable costs, suboptimal outcomes, and disparities. Cost and quality concerns along with changing social and disease-type demographics created the greatest urgency for the need for change. Caring for and paying for medical treatments for patients suffering from chronic health conditions are a significant concern. The Affordable Care Act includes programs now led by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services aiming to improve quality and control cost...

The healthcare industry has historically rewarded providers on the basis of the volume of services rendered, rather than the value of those services. Through the commitment of the Department of Health and Human Services, new programs and legislation have been created to tie provider payment based on the achievement of the Triple Aim: improve the patient experience, reduce cost, and improve overall health. As a result, new programs and legislation have emerged, resulting in the need for cultural shifts, new skills, and new technology for health systems, providers, and patients...

Distal tibia fractures are one of the most demanding injuries in orthopaedic traumatology, due mainly to frequent coexistence of covering tissue problems and poor blood supply. Smoking exerts a detrimental effect on fracture healing, increasing the time to union. We report the case of a 60-year-old heavy-smoker (about 20 cigarettes a day) with a distal tibia fracture that necessitated synthesis with an external fixator to maximize the healing process, which nevertheless required more than one and half year to heal...
