DSRIP Project Requirement Updates
The NYS Department of Health released DSRIP baseline performance data, including annual performance targets for Demonstration Year 1. This information will be used by State PPS's to operationalize plans and processes around managing these measures.

To guide PPS's, the NYS DOH released a webinar, the "DSRIP Performance Measures: Annual Improvement Targets and Baselines". The webinar covers the foundations of the DSRIP baseline measures, how to interpret them, and how these measures are used to drive payment in conjunction with Achievement Values. To access the "DSRIP Performance Measures: Annual Improvement Targets and Baselines" webinar, please click here.


In addition, the latest Measurement and Specification Manual can be found through the following link.


The NYS DOH also revised the Domain 1 DSRIP Project Requirements Milestones and Metrics document. This document provides clarification to questions raised by PPS's in response to the prior version released in March 2015. To access the document, please click here
