Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

Southern Ocean Medical Center is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model. The CJR model aims to promote quality and financial accountability for care surrounding lower-extremity joint replacement (LEJR) procedures, commonly referred to as hip and knee replacements and/or other major leg procedures.

As part of its participation in the CJR model, Southern Ocean Medical Center entered into financial arrangements with collaborating health care providers and suppliers who are engaged in care redesign with the hospital and who may furnish health care services to our CJR beneficiaries during their episode of care. Under these agreements, Southern Ocean Medical Center may share payments received from Medicare as a result of reduced episode spending and hospital internal cost savings with collaborating providers and suppliers.

The following list includes health care providers and suppliers that have established a collaborator agreement with Southern Ocean Medical Center in order to share in financial rewards in the CJR model:
