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, 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."
To support continued population health improvement across New Jersey, the Department of Health (DOH) has developed a hospital performance initiative called the Quality Improvement Program-New Jersey (QIP-NJ). QIP-NJ will be administered by DOH in conjunction with the Department of Human Services as a Medicaid pay-for-performance initiative open to all acute care hospitals in the state.
Please see the QIP-NJ Page for more information on this program and access to informational materials.
An updated webinar schedule will be forthcoming. Hospitals will be notified of upcoming webinar dates. Slides and the recording from the March 2020 QIP-NJ Webinar can be found on the QIP-NJ page.
