I’ve been attending HANYS’ very informative 47th-annual Membership Conference at The Sagamore in Bolton Landing today and yesterday. Thursday's agenda included a presentation by New York State Commissioner of Health Dr. Howard Zucker. He spoke about the need to adapt to a constantly changing health-care landscape. Dr. Zucker also stressed the need for health-care organizations to work together. He also reviewed the six areas the state is focused on to drive reform: SHIP, an all-payer database to coordinate care, DSRIP, SHINY, the Prevention Agenda and attracting doctors to New York State. I found Commissioner Zucker's presentation very informative and appreciate his committment to achieving meaningful health-care reform in New York. Later this morning, State Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson will present a progress report on the state’s multi-year Medicaid transformation including a discussion on DSRIP and other incentives to support health-care delivery reform. I want to thank HANYS for hosting this annual conference. It helps guide and inform us as we continue to support health-care transformation.
