Redesigning Medicaid Healthcare Delivery
in the Finger Lakes Region

Bridging the gap between community and healthcare

Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS)

We are a network of hundreds of clinical and community-based provider organizations working together in a 13-county region to transform the system of healthcare delivery by bridging the gap between community and healthcare.

Common Ground Health and FLPPS are proud to co-lead the
NYS DOH 1115 Waiver planning efforts in the Finger Lakes Region.

We successfully led the implementation of the New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program (DSRIP) from 2015 – 2020 with the goal of improving the design and delivery of healthcare for the Medicaid population. DSRIP’s mission was to reduce avoidable hospitalizations and improve population health while lowering the cost of healthcare. Together with our Partner network, we achieved:

232,000

Patients Engaged

99%

PROJECT MILESTONES MET

80%

OF ELIGIBLE DOLLARS EARNED FOR PARTNERS

Driving Transformation Through Four Strategic Pillars

We continue to drive transformation in the Finger Lakes region post-DSRIP by ensuring the sustainability of successful DSRIP programs and investing in new, innovative efforts that bridge the gaps in the healthcare delivery system, including social, racial, and health inequity gaps that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community Programs

We are building on and continuing healthcare system transformation work through large-scale programs such as System Transformation and Community Investment and Transformational Community Care Coordination.

Supporting Partners 

We are advancing our mission to improve the Medicaid healthcare delivery system through the collaborative relationships we have formed with partners and stakeholders in our region.

GRHHN

We provide care management and care coordination, with a specific focus on addressing social determinants of health through our subsidiary organization, Greater Rochester Health Home Network (GRHHN).

WORKFORCE

We bring together partners to develop programs and provide a training solution to address healthcare workforce needs. Workforce shortages have been exacerbated by the pandemic and underscore the critical need to create a stronger and higher performance workforce development system.

“The Finger Lakes IPA, a partnership of the region’s community health centers, six behavioral health organizations, and the S2AY Rural Health Network, is very excited to be a part of this important initiative by FLPPS to support the critical need for access to developmental screenings for young children in our rural communities. This program will give us the ability to provide access to services that are often not available due to geographic and other barriers to care experienced by our patients.”

Mary Zelazny, Chair of Finger Lakes IPA and CEO of Finger Lakes Community Health

“The key to the success of this menu of services is our ability to have a two-way dialogue with doctors and other medical professionals about both health and social support needs at home. We’ve proven this model can improve patient outcomes and reduce unnecessary ED visits and hospitalizations, and that’s a win for everyone. It also reduces both physician and patient/family caregiver frustrations.”

Ann Marie Cook, President and CEO of Lifespan

“For decades Regional Health Reach has been a leader in the community in providing healthcare and support services to those experiencing homelessness. Through our traditional clinic, mobile medical unit, and presence at shelters, our Healthcare for the Homeless program has touched thousands of lives. Health Reach is excited to partner with Finger Lakes Performing Provider System and MC Collaborative to expand our reach to unsheltered individuals, meeting them where they are, to provide the care they need.”

William E. Belecz, Executive Director of Regional Health Reach

“By expanding our Person In Crisis teams to include certified peer specialists, we will be able to assist even more of our residents in need in a humane and compassionate manner. In addition, by assisting residents in this new way, we are expecting that there will be a reduced number of people calling the PIC team because they are getting connected to the services they need.”
