Projects

OneCity Health selected 11 projects from a list of 44 options offered by the state that align with the results of its Community Needs Assessments. Metrics gauging progress under each of the 11 projects will be tracked and submitted to the state in accordance with DSRIP program requirements. Each project is described in detail below.

It is important to understand that our overarching objective is to achieve system transformation by working collaboratively with our partners to create a delivery system that is truly patient-centered. In this sense, OneCity Health will train its focus on thoughtful and deliberate consideration of the patient’s journey along the continuum of care. By focusing on this journey, we have developed an approach to DSRIP project activation that groups projects which share common thematic elements. These groups and their corresponding activities are:

  • Strengthen Primary Care and Behavioral Health
    • Integration of primary care and behavioral health services
    • Evidence-based practices to improve cardiovascular disease management
    • Integration of palliative care into primary care setting
    • Enhancement of asthma self-management in pediatric patients
  • Enhance Outreach and Activation
    • Comprehensive program to actively engage patients in high-quality, patient-centered care, regardless of insurance status
  • Ensure Robust, Targeted Care Management
    • Global risk stratification
    • Episodic or longitudinal care management support that meets patient needs and promotes self-management
  • Support Seamless Care Transitions
    • Evidence-based care coordination and PCP linkage for patients presenting to the ED for non-urgent care
    • 30-day supported post-hospitalization transitional care services for patients at risk for readmission
