Care Coordination

An important aspect of the New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program will be the implementation of care coordination and transitional care programs. This can be accomplished by integrating primary care providers, case management agencies, health homes, and the patients themselves.

CNYCC’s goal is to empower its partner organizations and their employees with the necessary skills to deliver a training plan and provide resources for effective care management principles. The Care Coordination program aims to provide support and a central care coordination resource to educate partner organizations and their employees create a care plan, coordinate care and engage patients.

CNYCC will be providing a series of educational resources and tools related to care coordination for PPS partners. Below you will find current CC training resources:
