Since 2009, Global 1 has administered an innovative bundled payment program through its quality network of surgeons, facilities and anesthesiologists that offers a single price for an episode of care. This collaboration promotes reduced healthcare costs by moving qualified surgical cases from hospitals to outpatient surgery centers.
Additionally, by pre-negotiating bundled rates with providers and surgery centers, Global 1 has created a medical ecosystem that prioritizes patient care over the usual fee-to-service focus. This approach has produced lower surgical costs with improved patient outcomes in the commercial market.
In partnership with Anthem Workers’ Compensation, Global 1 created a NEW California Work Comp platform, offering:
• Surgical case migration from high-cost hospitals to cost-effective outpatient surgery centers
• 20 bundled rates for high-acuity total joint and spine outpatient procedures
• Network of select quality providers to maximize patient care and healthcare savings
• Potential claim savings by reducing temporary disability and lowering permanent disability percentages
• Administrative ease in coordinating a surgical episode of care and approving a single medical bill
