Joint Replacement

The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model. The CJR model aims to promote quality and financial accountability for care surrounding lower-extremity joint replacement (LEJR) procedures, commonly referred to as hip and knee replacements and/or other major leg procedures. The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus’ participation in the CJR model should not restrict your access to care for your medical condition or your freedom to choose your health care providers and services.

The CJR episode of care continues for 90 days following discharge. This model tests bundled payment and quality measurement for an episode of care associated with LEJR procedures to encourage hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers to work together to improve the quality and coordination of care from the initial hospitalization through recovery.

The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus entered into financial arrangements with collaborating health care providers and suppliers who are engaged in care redesign with the hospital and who may furnish health care services to you during your episode of care. Under these agreements, The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus may share payments received from Medicare as a result of reduced episode spending and hospital internal cost savings with collaborating providers and suppliers.

The following list includes health care providers and suppliers that have established a collaborator agreement with The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus in order to share in financial rewards and/or losses in the CJR model: Tallgrass Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, LLC. 6001 Sw 6th Suite 200 Topeka, Ks 66614 (Benedict Figuerres, Kenneth Teter, Craig Vosburgh, Steven Anderson)
