What is the DSRIP Program?

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.

What is a PPS?

A performing provider system (PPS) is a partnership of regional care providers collaborating on projects focused on improving population health and delivery transformation. 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.

What is CCB?

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.

CCB's DSRIP Projects

At the onset of the DSRIP program, the New York State Department of Health created dozens of projects for PPSs to choose from. CCB's choices were informed by a Community Needs Assessment, which identified the main health and health service challenges facing communities in Brooklyn. The projects for which CCB saw the greatest opportunities for growth were:

  • Creating an integrated delivery system
  • Addressing drivers of potentially preventable ED utilization
  • Improving care transitions to reduce 30-day readmissions
  • Proactively supporting high-risk patients
  • Integrating behavioral health services into primary care
  • Designing and implementing evidence-based strategies for adults with cardiovascular disease
  • Expanding asthma home-based self-management programs
  • Integrating palliative care into primary care
  • Strengthening mental health and substance abuse infrastructure across systems
  • Increasing access to and retention in HIV care
