“DSRIP Update and the Impact on the Healthcare Workforce”

DSRIP is the main mechanism by which New York State will implement the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) Waiver Amendment. DSRIP´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% over 5 years. The entities that are responsible for creating and implementing a DSRIP project are called Performing Provider Systems (PPS). The panel will discuss current success and issues PPS are facing around workforce as PPS implement their DSRIP project plans.
