Staten Island Performing Provider System (SI PPS) is a member of the New York State Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program.

Launched in 2014, NYS DSRIP had a primary goal of reducing avoidable hospital utilization by 25%.

SI PPS and Wellth began working together in Summer 2018 to create a program specifically for the highest-risk portion of the Staten Island PPS diabetes population to implement evidence-based disease management practices in order to reduce the preventable ER visits and hospitalizations that result from diabetes complications.
