The Delivery System Reform Incentive Project (DSRIP) is the main mechanism by which New York State will implement changes to the delivery of healthcare. A major goal of this Medicaid reform project is in decreasing preventable hospitalizations by 25% over time as well as reducing Medicaid spending through various mechanisms. To achieve healthcare reform of this magnitude, institutions have developed and implemented strategies toward achieving the “Triple Aim.” These strategies are geared toward improving overall health in a defined patient population; improving the patient care experience and outcomes (e.g. quality, access, reliability, etc.); and decreasing or containing the cost of per capita care.

The purpose of this program is to provide an educational forum to discuss various changes in healthcare delivery as a result of DSRIP toward achieving the Triple Aim; emerging roles in nursing leadership and practice, new technologies to enhance healthcare delivery; and the importance of continued nursing involvement toward the improvement of healthcare and patient care outcomes.

The intended audience for this program are nurses in leadership, education and practice, nursing students, and other healthcare professionals interested in topics related to the progression of the Triple Aim on healthcare delivery and the implications this will have on the nursing profession.
