After applicants submitted non-binding DSRIP Performing Provider Letters of Intent to New York State, we hosted a “Call to Collaborate” meeting on May 22, 2014 in Buffalo.
Non-binding DSRIP (Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program) Performing Provider Letters of Intent were submitted to New York State on May 15, 2014, so we invited organizations in western New York that serve Medicaid enrollees, to join us on May 22, 2014 to find out who applied and who their partners were. The organizations participating included health care, behavioral health and developmental disabilities providers, independent providers, hospitals of all sizes, home-health agencies, and long-term care facilities.
At the event, New York State Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson shared important updates and talked about next steps. Allison Hamblin, MSPH, vice president for strategic planning at Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc., provided information on what other states have done regarding building a collaborative effort, effective governance structure, maximizing performance and financial incentives.
There was also presentation on data sources available to applicants. Following the presentations was a facilitated discussion of questions received from attendees.
