Over the next five years, New York State will provide $6.42 billion in funding grants to health care providers through the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. With a core goal of reducing avoidable hospitalizations by 25%, DSRIP will fundamentally restructure the health care delivery system in New York State, with implications for all health care providers. While some providers will be the lead entities in forming Performing Provider Systems (PPSs) in their regions, non-lead entities (hospitals, home care, long-term care, OPWDD providers, clinics and physician practices, among others) will play a key role in PPS organizations. Just as important, PPS participation has significant legal, financial, operations, and clinical implications for all participating providers.

In the overview we will review, among other things:

  • DSRIP objectives and requirements
  • Timelines, projects and domains
  • Major legal issues facing DSRIP participants
  • Financial, operations and clinical issues posed by PPS participation
  • The role of organized labor

Legal issues we will talk about will include:

  • Collaboration, anti-trust and Certificate of Public Advantage (COPA)
  • PPS Governance: Structures, representation and participation
  • Requirements for PPS budget planning, funding allocations and sanctions for poor performing providers
  • Incentives for coordinating care and reducing preventable hospital admissions
  • Fraud and abuse issues posed by network referral, affiliation agreements and pay-for-performance
  • Data sharing, HIPAA and credentialing
