Redesigning Medicaid Healthcare Delivery in the Finger Lakes Region
Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 2014 with the mission of improving the healthcare delivery system for the Medicaid population. FLPPS comprises a network of health and human services providers, including health systems, federally-qualified health centers, nursing homes, behavioral health providers, and community based organizations, across the 13 county region (Allegany, Cayuga, Chemung, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties).
Over the last five years, FLPPS successfully led the implementation of the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program (DSRIP), the goal of which is to improve the design and delivery of the healthcare for the Medicaid population for the purpose of reducing unavoidable hospitalizations and improving population health, while lowering the cost of healthcare. FLPPS continues this mission through the collaborative relationships we have formed with Partners and stakeholders in our region, and the expertise of the FLPPS team in integrated healthcare delivery system optimization, care management, network and program management, population health and data analytics, and learning and development. FLPPS also operates the Greater Rochester Health Home Network (GRHHN) which serves eligible high risk Medicaid members with care management.
