DSRIP Update Meeting

On August 1st, Chautauqua County Health Network hosted a regional DSRIP update meeting at SUNY JCC in Fredonia. 52 individuals were in attendance from different community partners in the region to present updates on their work being done for DSRIP. The New York State (NYS) Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program´s purpose is to fundamentally restructure the health care delivery system by reinvesting in the Medicaid program, with the primary goal of reducing avoidable hospital use by 25 percent by 2020. If we maintain our current reduction rates, the state will achieve a 33.14% reduction over baseline for potentially preventable readmission and 26.9% reduction for potentially preventable emergency room visits. Currently, we are in demonstration year three and measurement year four. Community partners provided handouts to showcase available resources and services throughout our county that align with our DSRIP objectives. Through collective impact, many different community partners have been collaborating to meet the goals for DSRIP.
