New York State (NYS) has worked with the Federal Government to initiate the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, which allows NYS to reinvest over six billion dollars over five years to improve healthcare for Medicaid recipients. The DSRIP program promotes community-level collaborations with a focus on system reform and aims to reduce avoidable hospital use by twenty-five percent by 2020.

DSRIP funding is allocated to PPSs based on their performance meeting project milestones and achieving statewide metrics. At the start of the DSRIP program, over twenty PPSs were formed statewide.
CCB is one of the largest PPS in New York State and the biggest PPS in Brooklyn. Our network is comprised of over 800 participant organizations, more than 3,000 clinical providers (including 1,100 PCP’s), and over 448,000 attributed Medicaid lives.

The projects for which CCB saw the greatest opportunities for growth were:
