The New York State Department of Health’s Population Health Improvement Program (PHIP) promotes a Triple Aim –better care, better population health and lower health care costs –by selecting regional contractors to provide a neutral forum for identifying, sharing, disseminating and helping implement best practices and strategies to promote population health and reduce health care disparities in their respective regions.
With support from the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth), HealtheConnections Health Planning undertook a planning project to assess the feasibility of making a statewide health care provider database a reality. Such a database could be instrumental in ensuring the best use of resources to achieve the maximum impact on reducing costs and improving service delivery throughout the State.
The database is envisioned to incorporate all licensed New York State health care providers (approximately 100,000–120,000 individuals), offer information that is modifiable and validated, and give users the ability to provide real-time feedback on accuracy of the information.
