Bundled Payment Activities
The Office of Rural Health Policy has provided the following examples of how hospitals can spend SHIP grant funding to support Bundled Payment activities:
- Extending the hospital's wireless network to physicians’ offices to improve accountability across the continuum of care;
- Educating staff on palliative care transition; and
- Staff training on improving care transitions and case management services.
The above list contains only examples of how hospitals may expend their SHIP grant funding in support of Bundled Payment activities. Hospitals may certainly spend their SHIP grant funding in ways not listed above provided that the funding
is used to offset costs related to building accountability across the continuum of care.
