CMS has released its final rule for the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model. In addition to dropping one “C” from the acronym, there are several substantive changes from the proposed rule; most important of which is that the program will now begin on April 1, 2016. DataGen is revising its analytics to reflect all of the changes. We will be ready to share insight on opportunities under CJR prior to the program’s official start.
We have updated our “Ten Things” paper to reflect the final rule.
