The Independent Assessor (IA) for New York’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program has completed its Mid-Point Assessment of all twenty-five Performing Provider Systems (PPS).
The Department is pleased with the findings of the review, as all twenty-five PPS demonstrated that they are on a track towards success and effective project implementation. There were no findings for any PPS that would warrant any major restructuring intervention, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of those who are fundamentally changing the healthcare delivery system in New York State.
The IA has prepared a Mid-Point Assessment Report for all twenty-five PPS as well as the following three appendices for each PPS containing additional data used in the completion of the Mid-Point Assessment review:
- Data from the 360 Survey responses received from sampled network partners.
- Partner engagement tables for all Domain 2 and 3 projects provided by the PPS as part of their DY2, Q2 reporting.
- Project and organizational narratives submitted by the PPS as part of the DY2, Q1 PPS Quarterly Reports.
The IA has also developed a “Mid-Point Assessment Report Companion Document” that provides details on the Mid-Point Assessment process and methodology as well as a summary of the results for all PPS.
PPS and the public are invited to submit comments in response to the IA’s initial recommendations through December 21, 2016. All comments should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the initial comment period, the IA will review all comments from the PPS and the public and determine if any modifications to the initial recommendations are necessary. The IA will then release its final recommendations by January 3, 2017, along with a compilation of all comments received during the initial comment period. The final recommendations will be available for public comment through January 23, 2017. These recommendations will then be presented to the Project Approval and Oversight Panel (PAOP) from January 31 – February 3, 2017.
