Becker's Hospital Review

The Integrated Healthcare Association has been awarded a three-year, $2.9 million grant by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to demonstrate bundled payments for physicians, hospitals and other providers and to evaluate their effectiveness compared to current payment methods in California, according to an IHA news release.

The demonstration funded by AHRQ will build on existing small pilot funded by the California HealthCare Foundation in Los Angeles and Orange counties and expand the project statewide. It will eventually involve 20 teams of physicians, hospitals, surgery centers and other providers.
