On May 28, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “New York State’s Ambitious DSRIP Program: A Case Study.”
New York has by far the most ambitious Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program in the nation. The program has a clear focus on full health system transformation and payment reform. The state will invest $6.4 billion to incentivize collaboration among health care providers, social service providers, and community-based organizations to dramatically alter the way health care is delivered to Medicaid recipients. The primary goal: a 25% reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years. Getting there will require huge investments in community-based care, improvements in key quality metrics like hospital readmissions, and the continued shift from traditional fee-for-service payment models to value-based care.
Health Management Associates Principal Denise Soffel, PhD, has been on the front lines in helping New York plan, develop, and implement its DSRIP initiative. She provided an in-depth look at the initiative, including how the New York program will inform the thinking of other states considering applying for waivers, and why New York’s clear focus on health system transformation and payment reform signals the future direction of DSRIP nationwide.
