The program’s primary goal is to stabilize the safety net system and reduce avoidable hospital use by 25 percent over five years and meet the needs of Medicaid beneficiaries and low-income, uninsured individuals in local communities by aligning with the Triple Aim of improving access to care, improving quality of care, and reducing costs. New York’s Performing Provider Systems (PPS) were formed to lead regional partnerships.
Our PPS spans nearly 11,000 square miles and nine counties: all of Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, and Washington counties, and portions of Fulton, Saratoga and St. Lawrence counties. While a Medicaid program that impacts 143,000 attributed lives, the region’s 700,000 residents benefit from the increased support of population health.
AHI Organizational Transformation programs and projects are necessary to help partner organizations continually improve through effective fundamental change to an organization’s structure and culture.
Community Support Services
Our Community Support Services programs support community members as we work toward the goal of improving population health, transforming health care delivery, and eliminating health disparities.
Enrollment Assistance Services and Education (EASE)
Our EASE program manages health insurance enrollment and community awareness services for the Federal Affordable Care Act implementation.
Health Home Care Management
AHI Health Home Care Management provides enhanced coordination of medical and behavioral health care by linking community and social supports with health care for high-risk Medicaid members.
Community Assessment and Prevention
AHI provides health care workforce recruitment, training and support for prospective and current workforce. This is made possible through our AHI Performing Provider System (PPS) Workforce Committee.
The AHI PPS Workforce Committee includes representatives from each of our nine counties – Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren and Washington – with representation from hospitals, primary care, long-term care, behavioral health, training and education, and other key stakeholders.
The Workforce Committee is the governing body for all workforce activities. Committee members are appointed by the Steering Committee and are responsible for development, implementation and oversight to ensure the AHI PPS retains, hires and trains staff to support successful implementation of the 11 DSRIP projects.
