The New York State Department of Health has released a draft of its State Health Innovation Plan (SHIP), an initiative funded by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI)to advance the “Triple Aim” of better care and improved health at reduced cost in New York. A major focus of the plan is the creation of an integrated healthcare delivery system throughout New York State, with "Advanced Primary Care" (APC) at its core. Once finalized, the plan will serve as the basis of a subsequent grant application to CMMI that is expected to provide as much $60M in support of the proposals it contains. Public comments are actively being solicited and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 27.
