The purpose of the DSRIP program (Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program) is to fundamentally restructure the New York State health care delivery system by reinvesting in the Medicaid program, with the primary objective of reducing avoidable hospital use by 25% over five years. The New York State Department of Health has allocated $6.42 billion to this program with payouts based upon health systems and participating providers achieving the predefined results in system transformation, clinical management and population health.
