Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP)

The Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program is one component of the New Jersey's Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver as approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). DSRIP is a demonstration program designed to result in better care for individuals (including access to care, quality of care, health outcomes), better health for the population, and lower costs by transitioning hospital funding to a model where payment is contingent on achieving health improvement goals.

Hospitals may qualify to receive incentive payments for implementing quality initiatives within their community and achieving measurable, incremental clinical outcome results demonstrating the initiatives' impact on improving the New Jersey health care system.

The DSRIP program supports the Healthy New Jersey 2020 vision: "For New Jersey to be a state in which all people live long, healthy lives."
