Surgical bundles align healthcare delivery, purchasing and payment with an evidence-informed community standard for quality. As such, they provide an alternative to fee-for-service reimbursement and facilitate value-based contracting. Total joint replacement, including total hip and total knee replacement, are high-volume surgeries nationally and in Washington State.
