DSRIP activities are divided
into four categories, which are interrelated and complementary:
1 Infrastructure Development (DSRIP Project) lays the foundation
for delivery system transformation through investments in technology,
tools and human resources that will strengthen the ability of
providers to serve populations and continuously improve services.
The Category 1 menu provides 60 project options in 14 domains.
2 Program Innovation and Redesign (DSRIP Project) includes the
piloting, testing and replicating of innovation care models.
The Category 2 menu provides 65 project options in 19 domains.
3 Quality Improvements (DSRIP Outcome Measure) includes outcome
reporting and improvements in care that can be achieved within
the four demonstration years. The Category 3 menu consists of
108 outcome measure options in 13 domains. Some outcome measures
are defined as standalone and singly meet the requirement for
outcome association with a DSRIP project. Other outcome measures
are defined as non-standalone and must be grouped with a standalone
or with two or more additional non-standalone metrics to meet
- Category 4 Population-focused
Improvements (Reporting) pertains to hospital providers only
and is the reporting of measures that demonstrate the impact
of delivery system reform investments under the waiver. (Five
required reporting domains and 1 optional domain).
Menu also provides prescribed sets of process milestones and
associated metrics and improvement milestones and associated
metrics for each project/outcome domain. Milestones and associated
metrics, appropriate to each individual project, are to be bundled
for each Waiver Demonstration Year (DY). The milestone/metric
bundles form the basis for payment for each DSRIP project.
to achieve meaningful change by the end of the demonstration,
every performing provider must link each selected Category 1 or
2 project to related Category 3 outcome measures. The outcome
measure is to assess the results of care experienced by patients,
including patients’ clinical events, patients’ recovery
and health status, patients’ experiences in the health system
