EOC is partnering with Stony Brook Medicine on an innovative approach developed by the New York State Department of Health called the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program (DSRIP).
DSRIP promotes community-level collaborations, including outreach and assessment, with a focus on system reform. Assessment includes a brief 10-question survey called PAM (Patient Activation Measure) where individuals are able to work with community resources that can help them become more informed about their health and how to take a more proactive role in their own health care. Specifically, the goal is to achieve a 25 percent reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years. Stony Brook, EOC of Suffolk, Inc., and other providers collaborate to enable system transformation by implementing clinical improvements and efficiencies. The result is better health among populations who might not have otherwise received preventive and early intervention care.
