Population Health Improvement Program

The New York State Department of Health's Population Health Improvement Program (PHIP) will promote the Triple Aim of better care, better population health and lower health care costs. PHIP contractors each will work in one of several regions that together will serve the entire state. PHIP contractors will convene stakeholders and establish neutral forums to support strategic planning for identifying, sharing, disseminating and helping to implement best practices and local strategies to promote population health and reduce health care disparities in their respective regions. In particular, the PHIP will help support and advance ongoing activities related to the New York State Prevention Agenda 2013-2017 and the State Health Innovation Plan and incorporate strategies to reduce health and health care disparities.
