What we're accomplishing with your donations.
New York State launched the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program in 2014 to invest in system transformation, clinical improvement, and population health projects that promote community-level collaborations, with the goal of achieving a 25 percent reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years.
Under DSRIP, health and social care providers across the state formed collaborative networks called Performing Provider Systems to implement a wide range of innovative demonstration projects. The New York State Department of Health asked UHF’s Medicaid Institute to review the first four years of these efforts to identify key lessons and promising practices. The resulting report, DSRIP Promising Practices: Strategies for Meaningful Change for New York Medicaid, includes case studies of DSRIP projects across the state and an appendix of specific DSRIP measures, sorted by the outcomes that the promising practices sought to affect. It is a companion to the Department of Health’s DSRIP Stories of Meaningful Change in Patient Health, published in January 2019.
