Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR)
CJR (Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement) is a mandatory bundled payment initiative that starts on April 1, 2016 whether you, as a participant hospital, are ready or not. Even if you are not one of the over 800 hospitals impacted in 67 MSA’s, you should be preparing now for the eventual shift to mandatory initiatives by CMS or to an expansion of this one.
