  • St. Barnabas Hospital Spreading Open Notes in the Bronx Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $124,638

    True consumer empowerment begins when patients have access to the information they need to talk to their health care providers, share information, and develop a trusted relationship. OpenNotes is a national movement that spurs real patient engagement by giving patients and their caregivers access to the clinical notes written by health care providers. When patients have such access, they can develop stronger relationships with their providers; initiate conversations about or co-develop their care plan; develop a sense of ownership over their health information and treatment decisions; better remember what was discussed during a visit; become patient-safety partners by identifying errors in their records; and take medications as prescribed. To foster the spread of OpenNotes to more New York State hospitals and patients, NYSHealth issued a request for proposals, Spreading OpenNotes in New York State. Through this initiative, NYSHealth is supporting hospitals across the State in implementing OpenNotes at their facilities. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded St. Barnabas Hospital (SBH) a grant to participate in this initiative.

  • Parkinson Support Group of Upstate NY Empowering Health Care Consumers Conference Scholarship Priority Area: Other $506

    In a state as large as New York, a steady stream of smart, innovative work is coming from NYSHealth grantees and non-grantees alike that is relevant to NYSHealth’s priority areas of Building Healthy Communities and Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans’ Health. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at regional, statewide, and national conferences, meetings, and other convenings. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so. To address this issue, NYSHealth is awarding grants through its Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Communities, Consumer Empowerment, and Veterans’ Health Request for Proposals (RFP). Through this RFP, NYSHealth is sponsoring low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to these areas. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Parkinson Support Group of Upstate NY (PSGUNY) local affiliate, through the National Parkinson Foundation of Greater Rochester, a grant to participate in this initiative as part of its efforts to empower health care consumers.

  • United Hospital Fund of New York Promoting Patient-Centered Discharge Planning for Post-Acute Care Settings Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $219,606

    Post-acute care, including inpatient rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, home health agencies, and long-term care hospitals, is a critical and growing component of the health care system. Although there have been recent reforms to smooth the transition of patients discharged from hospitals to post-acute facilities and improve continuity of care, the system is not functioning as well as it should. Current hospital discharge protocols often overlook patient preferences and limitations, and the rush to discharge can lead to poor choices with significant consequences. Helping patients and their families choose the right setting at the right time could improve outcomes and lower costs. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the United Hospital Fund of New York (UHF) a grant to improve the ability of patients and family caregivers to make informed decisions about post-acute care settings.
