A key tenet of our mission is the improvement of population health outcomes. Over the course of the DSRIP program, our partnership network improved performance in nearly 40 clinical outcome measures across the region, with significant achievements in several domains including behavioral health outcomes, long-term care, patient satisfaction, and maternity and children’s measures. Understanding that population health improvement requires cohesive participation by all Partners, we focused on a region-wide approach to clinical outcome improvement.
Mid-DSRIP, we developed a strategy and implementation plan that would improve health outcomes quickly and significantly, via activities performed that would supplement the ongoing DSRIP projects.
Our Clinical Quality Committee (CQC) collectively examined specific characteristics of each clinical outcome metric and categorized the metrics into various categories for targeted improvement activities.
