Centegra Health System opted to participate in CMS’ Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative. But at first, it wasn’t sure how it was going to track, chart and monitor a patient’s progress throughout a full 90-day episode of care.

None of Centegra’s existing systems allowed it to chart pre-hospitalization or post-hospitalization, and it had no common platform for the various post-acute partners to be active participants in the care, with the exception of manual tracking, phone calls, faxing and so forth.
