Partnership Combines Proven CV Expertise with Bundled Payments Experience for Successful Implementation and Management of EPM Programs


Neptune Beach, FL—MedAxiom, the nation’s leading cardiovascular health care membership and performance community, is pleased to announce its partnership with Archway Health, a full service tech-enabled bundled payment company, to guide providers through every phase of implementation and management of bundled payment initiatives. Services offered range from hospital specific episode cost assessments and data analysis to readiness assessments and tools to optimize reimbursement and performance.

“As the pace of change in health care accelerates beyond anything we have seen before, one thing is clear,” said Jennifer Linville, Founder and CEO of MedAxiom. “The advancement of bundled payment initiatives—whether mandatory or voluntary—is having a major impact. Our partnership with Archway brings great value to our members and the larger CV community by helping them seamlessly transition to the new reimbursement realities that will dictate their success.”

Archway works with providers to set up, manage, and finance bundled payment programs. Because bundled payments are vastly different from traditional fee-for-service contracts, providers need new strategic, technological, big data, and patient tracking capabilities to manage these programs. The goal of the MedAxiom/Archway Health platform is to make bundled payments as simple as possible to design and implement for heart programs across the country.

“The evidence shows that bundled payments are good for health care, and deliver value for patients, providers and payors. Among the organizations we work with, we’ve seen savings of almost 10% per episode on average, with some organizations seeing savings of nearly 20%,” said Dave Terry, co-founder and CEO of Archway Health. “As we start working with providers for the new EPM program, MedAxiom and their community are an ideal partners because they are committed to improving cardiovascular care and understand the value of data for driving performance.”

The MedAxiom/Archway team is made up of a unique combination of experienced CV consultants, proven health care operators, big data analytics experts, and technology entrepreneurs; the Archway platform powers the bundled payment programs for more than 100 providers with $100 million in annual bundled payments revenue.
