Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) programs are part of an evolving Medicaid delivery system reform initiative. DSRIP programs provide states with funding that can be used to support healthcare providers - including hospitals, ACOs and Community Partners - to improve how they provide care to Medicaid beneficiaries. The New York DSRIP program was started in 2015 to promote community-level collaborations and focus on system reform with a goal to achieve a 25% reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years.
As U.S. healthcare costs continue to soar, many states are turning to new reform systems to improve overall population health, as well as reduce unnecessary costs and improve overall patient outcomes. Up to $6.42 billion dollars are allocated to this program with payouts based upon achieving predefined results in system transformation, clinical management, and population health. The DSRIP program aims to reduce Medicaid spending and reinvest the savings to transform the state’s health care system, which carries large implications for Medicaid and low-income patients. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 28% of the New York state population is low-income, 24% of the population is on Medicaid or CHIP, and 5 of 9 adults with a disability are covered by Medicaid, as are 52% of children with special needs. New York reports the largest health disparities in African American and black populations as well as those needing cash assistance (a marker of low socioeconomic status) in its annual Health Care Disparities in New York State report. CHI is passionate about discussing DSRIP with providers to help meet our mission of reducing healthcare disparities for the most underserved and vulnerable patient populations.
This executive roundtable convenes approximately 30 senior healthcare executives and key opinion leaders interested in discussing the implementation process, challenges and opportunities of DSRIP.
