Value Based Payment Quality Improvement Program (VBP QIP)

The NYS Department of Health (DOH) is working with Managed Care Organizations (MCO), Performing Provider Systems (PPS), and select hospital facilities in the Value Based Payment Quality Improvement Program (VBP QIP). The program assists hospitals in severe financial distress and enables these facilities to maintain operations and vital services while they work toward longer-term sustainability, improved quality, and alignment with the state´s Value Based Payment (VBP) initiatives. Through this program, facilities will develop a facility transformation plan that will promote:

  • Movement toward VBP
  • Improved Quality of Care
  • Financial Sustainability

Numerous MCOs have joined the program in which their responsibilities include distributing funds, monitoring facilities against their transformation plans, developing a facility transformation plan template based on DOH-provided criteria, and working collaboratively with DOH and the facilities´ PPS to guide facilities towards longer-term sustainability, improved quality, and VBP.
