About the Training

Under the auspices of New York State’s Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, since December 2015 the NYC Department for the Aging has partnered with the NYC Health + Hospitals Performing Provider System, d/b/a OneCity Health Services. While the primary goal of the statewide DSRIP program is to reduce avoidable hospital use by 25 percent over the course of five years, the state has also been using this opportunity to better integrate community-based organizations into the healthcare system. Our Care Transition Program—from a partnership between NYC Department of Aging’s contracted community-based organizations and two of OneCity Health’s hospitals—has been successful in achieving financial recognition for infusing a socially oriented service into a healthcare setting.

Join this web seminar on October 23; 1:00 - 2:00 PM Eastern to listen to representatives from the partnership discuss their successful collaboration, sharing their experiences and lessons learned from their partnership, as well as the possibility of future collaborations once statewide reform efforts have been completed. Register for FREE now and receive complimentary CEUs.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List two to three reasons why healthcare systems would seek out partnerships with community-based organizations to achieve desired outcomes;
  • Better understand different services and payment structures that healthcare systems may pursue while engaging community-based organizations; and,
  • Identify three to four challenges that community-based organizations will likely encounter and must address when partnering with healthcare organizations.
