Salient Helps NY Healthcare Groups Visualize Progress On Medicaid Reform Goals

Interactive dashboards now providing timely gap-to-goal feedback on DSRIP targets

ALBANY, NY – Performing Provider Systems (PPS) in New York State now have access to a new and important tool as they pursue the $6.4 billion Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program (DSRIP).

Salient Management Company, a longtime partner of New York State for Medicaid Reform initiatives, played a key role in launching the DSRIP Performance Dashboards on January 29th.  The DSRIP dashboards are now available to all 25 statewide PPS, tasked with restructuring and improving quality in the safety net health care system by focusing on primary and preventive care and reducing avoidable hospital use.

The DSRIP program spans 5 years, and allows PPS to earn incentive payments for meeting performance targets on key measures. Each DSRIP measure is designed to reward more efficient and effective delivery of healthcare services, resulting in better patient care at lower costs. For the first time, PPS can track their performance on DSRIP measures presented through Salient’s powerful data visualization layer. This empowers PPS to investigate root causes, take action, measure results, and adjust strategy.

Salient brings 30 years of experience helping companies continuously improve performance by putting knowledge in the hands of decision makers quickly enough to positively impact outcomes. Salient also has a long history of working with New York State, having previously deployed solutions for the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) as well as working closely with the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) in the years leading up to deployment of the DSRIP program.

“Putting the right information into the right hands at the right time is our basic idea,” added Guy Amisano, Founder and CEO of Salient. “Helping New York State build a solution to transform and enhance service delivery certainly adds another proud chapter to our story.”
