Surgeon Executive Keynote: Volume and Value - OMTEC 2018


Published on

The phrase “Volume to Value” has become so overused that it’s devoid of meaning. What hospitals mean when describing “Volume to Value” are changes that need to be made to the mix of product and service offerings in order to answer patients' demands and increase profitability, strategies any smart business should adopt. After all, if a product is properly priced and perceived as providing value to customers, there should be a rise in demand and volume. Dr. Mark I. Froimson, a surgeon executive and thought leader on value-based healthcare, will provide guidance on what’s driving hospital decisions for products and services and the impact on device company price and value.

  11. 11. Riverside Health Advisors Dartmouth Atlas A Description of Variation in Medicare Spend per Beneficiary by Geographic Region
  12. 12. Riverside Health Advisors Variability in Quantity of TKA by Region 5 – 15 per 1000 people (3x) “Quality in healthcare means doing the right things right.” “Although performance quality is important, so too is the quality of clinical decision-making: doing the right thing.” “Variation is an important indicator of problems in the quality of decision-making.”
  13. 13. Riverside Health Advisors Implicit Conclusion There isn’t that much physiologic variability Disease incidence isn’t that varied So some conclude that some Arthroplasties being performed must be discretionary
  14. 14. Riverside Health Advisors Variability in Cost to Deliver • 29 high-volume U.S. hospitals primary TKA w/o CC • Methods: TDABC calculated using internal costs/claims • Results: cost of TKA varied by a factor of about 2 to 1 • Conclusions: The large variation in costs • Some of the spend in each case must be discretionary—not adding value!
  15. 15. Riverside Health Advisors The Economic Criticisms of Arthroplasty: The Opportunity for Providers/Payers Problems • We are spending “too much” on Arthroplasty as a society • There is too much variability in spending on Arthroplasty • The variability in incidence cannot be explained by disease incidence • Each episode, on average, costs too much Solutions • Do fewer Arthroplasties—shared decision making • Reduce the variability in cost—narrow the distribution • Reduce the mean episode cost
  16. 16. Riverside Health Advisors Porter and Teisberg—2006 ‘Value Based’ Healthcare The U.S. healthcare system is in crisis. At stake are the quality of care for millions of Americans and the financial well-being of individuals and employers squeezed by skyrocketing premiums. —Not to mention the stability of state and federal government budgets.

  20. 20. Riverside Health Advisors Our Relationship with Money • Healthcare is a business • Each entity–health system, physician, payer, industry, employee–has an economic incentive • But, we think it makes us somehow impure to talk about the financial impacts of what we do • We deride ‘bean counters’ • We see ourselves as altruists–so we talk about “value” • Value in healthcare should be measured by what we as individuals and a society are willing to pay for, and how much is borne by each, by me, and by society.

Languages of Healthcare: So, what do we mean by value? Are you multilingual? How many languages do you speak?
  31. 31. Riverside Health Advisors What is Value? What is the Role of Price? • What are we willing to pay – Price • The amount of value I assign to a good or service is represented by the price I am willing to pay • Price as defined by • Money I will part with • Time I will spend choosing or obtaining the item • Political or emotional strain of the choice I make • Opportunity cost of what I am not doing or buying • Future spend that will be required to maintain this choice
  32. 32. Riverside Health Advisors Moral Hazard of Health Insurance: We don’t pay directly for healthcare • If someone else is paying for it, I want as much as I can get • I am not price sensitive when • I am not paying for it, or • I think I already paid for it • Current insurance is a combination of 2 distinct things • Insurance for the unexpected—emergencies, surgery • Prepaid health care for anticipated expenses—primary care, screening • When I can’t separate these out, I have a risk of feeling entitled and dissatisfied with my deal—co-pays, deductibles
  33. 33. Riverside Health Advisors What Type of Good or Service is Joint Replacement? Necessity? Discretionary? Commodity? Differentiated? Public good? Private good? Free market? Regulated market?
  34. 34. Riverside Health Advisors Is Healthcare (Joint Replacement) a Right? • Should everyone have equal access? • Who decides how we allocate resources? • Can you refuse to do a procedure on a noncompliant patient? • How do we think about the emergence of ‘hard stops’ • BMI > 40 • Smokers • Substance Use Disorder • We don’t really know how to set up a market for orthopedic services if we don’t agree on these issues

  37. 37. Riverside Health Advisors As payment per case drops, surgeons protect their salary by increasing the number of cases they do per day $2000 per case of a $25,000 total spend If I do 300 cases, my surgical billing is $600K and the total spend $7.5M $1000 per case of a $24,000 total spend If I increase to 500 cases, my billing drops to $500K, but total spend now hits $12M Paying surgeons less increases total spend (if some care is discretionary) Paying Surgeons Less Has Cost More Joseph Bernstein, MD, MS; Peter Derman, MD, MBA Orthopedics. 2012;35(12)
