Suzanne Delbanco catches up with CJ Stimson, MD, JD, the Senior Vice President of Value Transformation at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), to discuss Vanderbilt’s direct contract bundled payment arrangement for maternity care with Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS). The MyMaternityHealth bundle offers MNPS employees a comprehensive set of maternity services through VUMC – including prenatal visits, labs, imaging, labor & delivery, and 12 weeks of postpartum care for both mother and infant, as well as childbirth and lactation classes – at one “bundled” price. This call serves as follow-up to the webinar hosted by CPR in March 2021, where Dr. Stimson and David Hines of MNPS shared their insights one year after the program’s implementation.
