AHI Coordinated Referral Network Updates: New Name Selected; to Launch in October

Adirondack Health Institute is making great progress in the implementation of a coordinated, multi-sector referral network throughout our nine-county service area, built on the shared Unite Us technology platform. Here are the latest updates:

  • A poll was posted to select a name for the referral network. The results are in and the new network will be named ADK Wellness Connections.
  • We received a terrific response to our request soliciting names for our network advisory council, which will now be known as the ADK Wellness Connections Advisory Council. We will soon be in touch with those who expressed interest in participating.
  • Based on feedback provided during community strategy sessions held throughout AHI’s five Population Health Network (PHN) regions, ADK Wellness Connections will be a hybrid model referral network. This will allow for both direct provider-to-provider referrals and referrals to Coordination Centers, depending on user preference. A Coordination Center is a centralized resource for facilitating referrals between providers, ensuring all parties are informed of referral outcomes.
  • AHI will be issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP), anticipated to be released the week of July 23, 2018, to select organizations to fulfill the role of Coordination in three geographic areas: Glens Falls and Fulton PHN regions (Fulton, Hamilton, Warren, Washington, and northern Saratoga counties), Plattsburgh and Saranac Lake PHN regions (Clinton, Essex, and Franklin counties), and St. Lawrence PHN region (St. Lawrence County).
  • The timeline for launching the ADK Wellness Connections network has been amended to accommodate the RFP process. The anticipated launch date is now October 15, 2018.

If you have any questions about ADK Wellness Connections, please email AHI’s Community Engagement team at [email protected].

 

AHI’s Population Health Improvement Program Publishes North Country Obesity Report

AHI’s Population Health Improvement Program (PHIP) has published a report, Obesity in the North Country: Prevalence of Obesity Among Adults and Youth.
The report presents and discusses national, New York State, and North Country data regarding the prevalence of obesity and overweight, as well as the socio-economic, cultural, and behavioral factors associated with obesity. It includes a series of maps depicting North Country communities that have higher percentages of residents who have been diagnosed and treated for conditions related to obesity, such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension.
The report is intended to help inform regional and local discussions and strategies to address and reverse the obesity epidemic in the North Country.
Read the report.
If you would like to request a hard copy of the report, please email [email protected].

AHI PPS DSRIP News is Now AHInformer – First Edition Published

To better spotlight the work of Adirondack Health Institute and our partners, we are now using Constant Contact to share dynamic content in a more visually-appealing format. We have also rebranded our bi-weekly newsletter to reflect the full scope of information we share – AHI PPS DSRIP News is now AHInformer.

As we are an organization that administers programs and forges collaborative working relationships beyond the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program, we believe this name better encompasses the full breadth of our organizational endeavors, as well as those of our partners.
