Partnerships to Transform Care and Improve Health

OneCity Health is NYC’s largest Performing Provider System (PPS). It is sponsored by the NYC Health + Hospitals. NYC Health + Hospitals is the nation’s largest municipal healthcare system.

OneCity Health comprises four operating hubs, in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Manhattan (boroughs where OneCity Health partners provide a full continuum of services), a committee-based governance structure, and a central services organization providing operational management, called OneCity Health Services. (The health needs of Staten Island residents will be provided for through our network of Brooklyn-based partners and through collaboration with Richmond University Medical Center/Staten Island University Hospital, the Staten Island-based PPS.)

To ensure appropriate care for all NYC residents – with a focus on preventive, primary care – the OneCity Health partnership includes hundreds of community-based healthcare providers, services, and organizations, as well as HHC’s network of acute care hospitals, nursing homes, community clinics, home-care service, and MetroPlus, NYC Health + Hospitals’ health insurance plan.

Focused on identifying and engaging patients in care before they become sick, OneCity Health is undertaking 11 initiatives, or projects, to become an integrated delivery system of health and social service providers that closes critical gaps in the continuum of care and reduces avoidable hospital use by 25 percent by 2020.

OneCity Health will:

  • expand access to primary and ambulatory care
  • break down silos and integrate care across the continuum
  • increase patient self-care ability
  • close gaps in the continuum, especially in the delivery of behavioral health services and at transitions in care
  • establish a new population-based data analytics and information-sharing platform to connect points of care among providers, community partners, and patients
  • promote transparency and accountability among all providers
