Looking Back

Nearly All BPHC Projects Have Launched

In the beginning stages of DSRIP planning, we developed ten projects targeting the specific health needs of Bronx residents. To date, nearly all of these projects have launched. Participating member organizations will begin adopting new clinical protocols, information-sharing technologies, reporting systems, and possibly new staff. This will not happen all at once, of course. Our projects are complex and multifaceted, and will be implemented in phases throughout the DSRIP period.

Transformation Driven by Partner Expertise

DSRIP is not about reinventing the wheel – it is about making the most of the abundant resources already available in our community. Our PPS members have already developed their own unique and impactful service models, and we aim to spread them throughout our PPS.

This work has already begun. Innovative care models pioneered by the Institute for Family Health, a.i.r. NYC, and Montefiore’s Care Management Organization have become the centerpieces of several BPHC projects and will be soon widely adopted by BPHC member organizations. Throughout the DSRIP period, our work will be driven and inspired by the expertise of our PPS members.

 Supporting the Success of Our Partners

With DSRIP projects now underway, the landscape for Bronx healthcare will begin to shift, and the Central Services Organization (CSO) is here to help our PPS members in this transition. The CSO has connected primary care providers with experts in NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition program, who will help providers apply for and sustain the highest level of PCMH recognition.

Several BPHC member organizations are involved heavily in nearly every project, and have dedicated DSRIP Program Directors (DPDs) to manage the DSRIP effort. The CSO is supporting DPDs with the training and tools necessary to successfully implement BPHC’s projects. In particular, DPDs are guided by a clinical operations plan – a step-by-step roadmap to every project – which the CSO crafted in collaboration with clinical experts from a diverse group of PPS members
