Clinical Episode-Based Payment - National

The 6 Clinical Episode-Based Payment (CEBP) Measures (Conditions: Cellulitis, Kidney/Urinary Tract Infection, Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage; Procedures: Aortic Aneurysm, Spinal Fusion, Cholecystectomy and Common Duct Exploration) show whether Medicare spends more, less, or about the same on an episode of care for a Medicare patient treated in a specific inpatient hospital compared to how much Medicare spends on an episode of care for the respective condition or procedure across all inpatient hospitals nationally. This measure takes into account important factors like patient age and health status (risk adjustment) and geographic payment differences (payment-standardization).
