Improving the Medicaid healthcare delivery system through collaborative relationships

Supporting Partners

We value the collaborative relationships we have formed with the Partners and community stakeholders in our region, as we believe these strategic partnerships differentiate us in terms of network experience and opportunity for collaboration.

Here are the ways we can collaborate

We leveraged strong community collaborations developed through the DSRIP program to mobilize and respond quickly and effectively to the COVID-19 crisis. Numerous efforts took place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and many are still underway.

We provide consultative services related to program and project management, workflow redesign and documentation, data analytics, and evaluation and performance improvement.

We provide professional, technical, and administrative services as a lead agency for federal and private foundation grants. This includes program management support, fiscal management and oversight, and reporting.

We provide strategic consulting services that can include facilitating strategic planning sessions, project management, data analytics and benchmarking, independent provider association (IPA) subject matter expertise, and general administrative support.

We are comprised of a team of professionals who possess focused knowledge and expertise in these areas:

  • Grant Application Development and Management
  • Network Management
  • Clinical and Community Integration
  • Clinical Quality Committee Governance
  • Clinical Outcome Performance Improvement
  • Performance-Based Incentives, Funds Flow, Contracting, and State Reporting
  • Community-Wide Population Health Improvement & Analytics
  • Program and Project Management
  • Program Evaluation
  • Care Management
  • COVID-19 Response, Testing Coordination, and Vaccine Education
  • Workforce Development Programming, Training, and Learning Management System

Community Initiatives

We support and participate in Community Initiatives such as Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative (RMAPI) and TogetherNow (formerly the Monroe County Systems Integration Project).

RMAPI is a multi-sector community collaborative and its goal is to improve the quality of life by reducing poverty and increasing self-sufficiency. FLPPS is participating on the Steering Committee.

SIP is working across a diverse network of committed providers and community members to put  people at the center of care  in an interconnected system of education, health, and human services. FLPPS is participating in the Leadership Teams and various Workgroups. Learn more.

“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.”

Former City of Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren

“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

“I am excited to see ‘equity in action’ through this partnership with FLPPS, who recognizes the importance of lived experience and elevating the parent and patient voice to bring change across our health and behavioral health systems.”
