WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In preparation for the October 1 launch of the new Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Advanced model from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Archway Health has hired three additional team members to deliver one-on-one advisory support to healthcare organizations and providers preparing to launch their bundled payment programs. Archway is a preferred partner to specialists, hospitals, conveners and other healthcare associations and organizations participating in all of CMS’s bundled payment programs, including those who have applied to BPCI Advanced.
Joining Archway are Alexis Bolick and Samantha Tye as senior value-based care account managers, and Tori Hakim as a value-based care account manager. The three new team members will serve as direct liaisons to organizations partnering with Archway in the current BPCI and the upcoming BPCI Advanced models. In their roles, these individuals will provide personalized advisory support to guide providers toward high-value opportunities for improving processes and outcomes, while also reducing costs.
“The key to success in BPCI Advanced is through data-driven insights, discovered through personal advisory services,” said Dave Terry, CEO and Co-founder Archway. “We are confident that, through their intellect and experience, Alexis, Sam and Tori will help take our providers to the next level. And, I am proud to add them to our growing team of bundled payment experts.”
