Placentia-Linda Hospital, Inc. dba Placentia Linda Hospital is working with providers who treat Medicare Total Joint Replacement patients and who support the quality and cost goals of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Comprehensive Joint
Replacement Model (CJR). The Medicare CJR model promotes accountability for the quality, cost, and overall care for patients during certain Lower Extremity Joint Replacement, including managing and coordinating care; encouraging investment in infrastructure,
using technology, and redesigning care processes for higher quality and efficient service delivery.
Participating providers aim to provide items and services in a manner that reduces costs and improves quality during both the hospital stay and during the 90 days of post-acute care. The hospital’s policy states that to be a CJR collaborator, providers
have entered into a Collaborator agreement with the Participant Hospital. This includes physicians that perform LEJR procedures at the Hospital who have agreed to adhere to specific quality metrics including not exceeding a readmission threshold.
