NYSHealth’s “Best of 2014” Annual Report

In 2014, we continued to see big changes in New York’s health system. More than 1 million New Yorkers were enrolled in health insurance plans through the New York State of Health marketplace. The approval of an $8 billion Medicaid waiver and the launch of the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program injected new energy into plans to transform our health care delivery system. And momentum for addressing those factors outside of the medical care system that affect our health continued to grow as counties implemented their Community Health Improvement Plans.

The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) was pleased to play a role in all of these areas in 2014: expanding health insurance coverage, improving the way primary care and other health services are delivered, and promoting health and preventing illness in New York’s communities. We also continued our efforts to support special projects outside of those areas and to support the needs of returning veterans and their families. 

In lieu of a traditional annual report, we chose to highlight a handful of achievements and activities that we feel best about in each of these areas. I encourage you to click below to learn more about our “Best of 2014.”
