Dear Contra Costa Health Services employees and partners,
As many of you know, Contra Costa Regional Medical Center (CCRMC) and Health Centers (HC) is involved in a major effort under a new five-year Medicaid (Medi-Cal) Waiver that will allow us to make significant, widespread improvements in access and care throughout our system. The project, entitled the "Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP)" program, is designed to build on the improvements and innovations we've already accomplished and to help us prepare for the full implementation of Health Care Reform in 2014.
This major effort involves the time and dedication of everyone at CCRMC & HC, and will continue to do so throughout the project. However, most staff are involved in only a portion of the plan, and thus we wanted to give you some details about all the work we are undertaking as part of the Incentive Program. To that end, we have created a short summary that describes the improvements we've achieved thus far and those in progress, as well as what we hope to accomplish by the end of the five-year period.
I am pleased to share this information with you, and also want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the tremendous work you've achieved thus far and for your continued commitment to providing the best quality care for our patients. Please let Shelly Whalon or me know if you have any questions.
