Overview

As one of the elements of health care reform, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented a course of action aimed at bringing Medicare to a break-even budget. The elements that we are now familiar with include the 'clinical processes of care', 'outcomes' (which include readmissions, deaths, and complications), 'the patient experience of care', and now the "efficiency measure". The "Spending per Medicare Beneficiary Measure" or the 'efficiency measure' brings much of the work of case management to the surface yet again. This measure focuses on the length of stay and spending per beneficiary episode, two elements that case management plays a critical role in controlling and managing. 
Medicare's purpose in applying this measure is to encourage hospitals to be more cost efficient by providing financial incentives to hospitals based on their performance. CMS also hopes to increase the transparency of care for consumers and recognize hospitals that are involved in providing high-quality care at a lower cost.
