Bundles Abound: What’s the Difference?

Healthcare IT Today recently interviewed C.J. Stimson, MD, JD, Chief Medical Officer, Employee Health Plan at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), and Brittany Cunningham, DNP, MSN, RN, CSSBB, Vice President for VUMC's Episodes of Care Office, about bundled payment arrangements, an innovation being embraced by various segments of health care.

Watch this video to hear them describe the difference between bundled payment programs created by provider organizations such as VUMC and bundled payment programs created by insurance companies. Dr. Stimson described how VUMC’s culture is heavily focused on patients and providers, leading the health system to create MyHealth Bundles to match that culture.


Dr. Cunningham also spoke on HFMA’s podcast, "Voices in Healthcare Finance," about MyHealth Bundles, a successful bundled payment program that helps employees proactively and conveniently manage their health. Listen to the 20-minute episode at this link.
