New York, NY, October 3, 2014 – Performance Logic is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with HANYS Solutions to offer healthcare providers in New York State a comprehensive project management tool to support their efforts under the Medicaid 1115 waiver. The tool, DSRIP Tracker, is a cloud-based application specifically designed to help healthcare organizations and Performing Provider Systems with project planning, implementation, and ongoing performance monitoring under the DSRIP (Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment) program authorized by the waiver. The partnership between Performance Logic and HANYS Solutions, a subsidiary of HANYS that provides a broad range of products, services, and data analytics to hospitals and health systems across New York State, comes after Performance Logic’s success in supporting providers in California and Texas with their DSRIP projects. Approximately 185 provider organizations in Texas are currently using DSRIP Tracker to manage nearly 1,000 active projects with an estimated project value of $8 billion.
“The complexities associated with implementing, managing and monitoring DSRIP projects will be challenging,” said Michael Ilnicki, President and CEO, HANYS Solutions. “Performance Logic offers a project management solution that has been tested, implemented, and successful in assisting other states with their DSRIP efforts. Their experience and knowledge of other DSRIP programs along with the challenges and lessons learned will provide a great benefit to our members as they begin this five-year journey.”
DSRIP Tracker provides project teams with a collaborative platform for managing tasks, sharing information, and providing updates, enabling projects to stay on track and achieve their milestones. It includes project templates that meet DSRIP guidelines, tools for meeting management and team communications, access to real-time status dashboards, and the ability to store and share project-related documents and reports. In addition, DSRIP program performance can be viewed at both the provider and regional levels in real time.
“We are excited to partner with HANYS Solutions to offer providers across New York State a comprehensive, web-based project management tool that incorporates the key requirements of the DSRIP program and fosters collaboration and information sharing,” said Neelesh Shah, President and CEO, Performance Logic. “Effective project management will be essential to ensure DSRIP milestones and metrics are achieved. We believe DSRIP Tracker can play an important role in helping support this effort.”
