Reducing Avoidable Hospital Use through Delivery System Reform
About this Website
This website provides access to informational and administrative materials related to New York's DSRIP program. As well, this website also provides links to other relevant MRT Waiver Amendment resources. Please check back periodically, as this website will be updated with the most current New York State DSRIP documents as they become available.
The Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program is one component of New York's proposed Medicaid Waiver Amendment submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and is currently pending approval. The DSRIP program is designed to stabilize the state's health care safety-net system, re-align the state's delivery system as well as reduce avoidable hospitalizations and emergency department use by 25% over the next 5 years. To accomplish this goal, the state's DSRIP program will encompass a variety of projects that will engage a wide array of providers.
The projects funded through DSRIP will assist safety-net institutions in their effort to both right-size inpatient capacities as well as transform their care delivery models to provide a more precise mix of services necessary in the communities in which they serve. Additionally, the DSRIP program will incentivize collaboration across previously siloed providers to reduce system fragmentation. Hence, there is an opportunity for community-based providers to play a vital role in this program. By working together through the DSRIP program, health care providers can deliver more appropriate, timely and coordinated care to their communities.
