Many musculoskeletal injuries or conditions can be managed or treated with therapy.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program

Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. The program is a new payment model being tested for episodes of care related to total knee and total hip replacements under Medicare, with the goal of supporting better and more efficient care coordination for patients undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries.

The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model continues to pay providers under existing payment systems, but holds hospitals responsible for the quality and costs from the initial procedure through 90 days after the patient is discharged. Through the CJR program, CMS expects improved coordination of care among hospitals, physicians and post-acute care providers – from surgery to recovery –to benefit patients and result in better outcomes and fewer complications.
