The Impact of CJR on Total Knee Replacement and How Conformis Can Help

On April 1, 2016 the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model was put into effect and now these bundled payment models hold hospitals financially responsible for the quality and cost of an episode of care, from admission through 90 days post-discharge.The CJR program has a goal to save approximately $343 million over 5 years. That amounts to a savings goal of approximately $700 per patient across the entire episode of care.

Conformis has a unique just-in-time delivery model that offers significant benefits to hospitals. Unlike off-the-shelf systems that require up to 5 costly, sterilized instrument trays, the Conformis model includes a single, pre-sterilized kit of patient-specific instruments, a single reusable instrument tray, and no implant inventory.

The Conformis customized iTotal CR has demonstrated clinical and economic benefits for surgeons, patients, and hospitals across the entire episode of care, from the initial hospitalization through rehabilitation and recovery.
