Marking a Major Milestone as DSRIP Enters its Third Year
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s ambitious initiative to transform and restructure New York State’s health care delivery system – the five-year, $6.42 billion Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program – entered its third year on April 1. With nearly 3,000 physicians and partners serving 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries, Advocate Community Providers (ACP) is the second-largest Performing Provider System (PPS) and the only one led by physicians. Nearly halfway through the DSRIP timeline, ACP is delivering high-quality, patient-centered care while working to drive down costs and change how Medicaid beneficiaries receive their health care in New York.
Year three of DSRIP brings with it added emphasis of shifting physicians toward a pay-for-performance model, and away from the traditional fee-for-service payment model. At a time of national uncertainty surrounding health care, New York’s transformative health care delivery system is an example of a new, sustainable, patient-centric model focused on quality of patient outcomes – not volume.
