More states are looking to Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment programs – DSRIP – to generate the resources they need to improve their Medicaid delivery and payment systems. A number of states, including New York, Texas, California, Illinois, and New Jersey, have already implemented DSRIP programs and others are planning or at least contemplating similar undertakings.

Medical EquipmentNew York’s Medicaid director has posted on YouTube a presentation addressing one aspect of his state’s DSRIP program: value-based payments. The five-minute talk breaks Medicaid value-based payments into five themes: value over volume, stronger together than apart, reduce avoidable complications and hospital use, reinvesting into the system, and making health care sustainable.
