Epilepsy Model Episodes of Care
Neurologists are being encouraged to think about care delivery in terms of episodes of care, population management, and care coordination. The AAN defines an episode as all the services needed by a patient during a defined period of time. The episodes of care serve as a framework in which evidence-based services ought to be considered when negotiating with payers for an episode-based payment. The Epilepsy Model Episode of Care was developed by the AAN using experts in epilepsy and vetted by the American Epilepsy Society and Child Neurology Society.
