PPS members recently convened in a total of 6 discussion sessions throughout July and August to explore the role of community-based services in our DSRIP projects. A total of 47 individuals, representing 39 different organizations, discussed approaches to improving care coordination and integrating social and healthcare services.
Two work groups grew from these sessions. The Engagement Plan Work Group will support the creation of a Community Engagement Plan, which is a DSRIP requirement and will be submitted with the October 30th quarterly report. The Communications Strategies Work Group will develop strategies to improve communication between community-based organizations (CBOs), healthcare providers, and clients.
