BPCI Tutorial Video 8: Conveners
Healthcare is a team sport. In order to deliver superior care in the bundled payments paradigm, healthcare providers must work together. Conveners are organizations that have carefully cultivated relationships with a network of quality healthcare providers that are committed to better patient outcomes.
Throughout the episode period, the convening organization supports the providers in delivering coordinated care to help improve patients’ health. These are called facilitating conveners.
In addition to facilitating care and providing administrative services, some conveners also assume a portion of the financial risk associated with the episodes. They are called Awardee conveners.
