Tested Process Provides Multi-Phase Support; Leads to Success.
Once a hospital or health system signs up for the AMS Gainsharing Program, a tested three-part process ensures success. AMS serves as the independent third-party scorekeeper. We ensure data integrity and support hospitals and systems throughout the program. Our participatory process engages providers and staff at all levels. Our support has helped insure continuing physician engagement.
Identifying Savings Opportunities.
AMS runs the hospital’s most recent cost data and then generates AMS PBIS® standard reports and simulates incentive payments. With hospital administration and medical staff leadership, we review AMS simulated data and possible savings or cost reduction opportunities.
Physician Recruitment, Pre-Implementation Training and Education.
AMS helps hospitals recruit participating physicians. We engage providers and staff at all levels, provide materials including a Physician Handbook customized for the hospital(s), and help organize and educate work groups.
AMS Gainsharing Program Implementation, Designed and Tested to Ensure Success.
To launch the AMS Gainsharing Program, hospitals submit a standard data set to AMS. Using the data set, we calculate individual physician incentive payments and savings opportunities.
During the launch, AMS provides technical assistance with data collection, aggregation, and normalization of quarterly hospital discharge data as well as assistance with ensuring data integrity — including data editing and feedback for improved accuracy in future data submissions.
