Transplant Episodes of Care: Why, What, When, How? (12:08)

Building care bundles may be easy, but in order to deliver on those bundles, disciplined care redesign is necessary — and that’s the difficult part. Michael Abecassis, Founding Director of the Northwestern University Comprehensive Transplant Center, shares his expertise in episodes of care from the transplant perspective, breaking the topic into four questions: Why manage episodes of care? What is the product, and who is the consumer? If value is the game, when can providers start playing it? How can providers manage episodes of care?

From the NEJM Catalyst event Innovation in Health Care Leadership: The New Health Care Marketplace at Northwestern University, June 4, 2015.
