Tidbits from the March 2019 newsletter
March:  The Maple Sap is Rising
It is early spring.  The sap is rising; the season for growth and movement.
What are you noticing about the spring energy of growth and movement?  Uncomfortable? Blocked?  Perfect weather?  More than ready to jump into summer after a long winter?

March Discussion Topics in the Community
  • Acupuncture for post-surgical pain
  • Knee/joint replacement integrative care models:  The Bree Collaborative’s bundled payment model 
    • On knee/joint replacement care, let's take a step back and look at models of care for the patient's care process from pre-surgery to recovery.  The Bree Collaborative of Washington state finished the total knee replacement bundled payment model standard last year (2018).  This is a one-to-watch for your medical centers. 
    • The Bree Collaborative is a standard-setter in value-based model care with patient-centered outcomes.  It sets standards for WA state health care policy. These models they discuss work best in “centers of healthcare excellence (COHE or COE)” where patients can have access to all services in the bundle in one system and in a timely manner.  From assessment of surgery to surgery to inpatient stay to post-operative care to rehabilitation care.
