Bundled payments, having gained increased popularity, coordinate payments for multiple providers for services rendered for single elements of care. While becoming more popular, many healthcare providers are still mystified how the bundled payment system works. However, there are incentives that can include shared savings and other financial incentives. Deirdre Baggot receives national acclaim for her work in bringing the bundled payment system mainstream.

She also earned an Master’s degree in Business Administration from Loyola University, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She brings a great deal of education and experience to bear on the subject.

Her desire to simplify healthcare resulted from her own experiences of working with a patient that required extensive testing. The extensive testing aimed to determine the cause of illness. Her frustrations of not being able to determine the cause of illness led to a system of doing less while being able to make better decisions based on more abundant information. Today’s healthcare tools are far more advanced than those she used, and help advance the quality of patient care in ways that improve testing and treating.
