  • 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.

  • 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.

  • AARP Foundation Convening of a Caregiver Summit Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $50,000

    Approximately 2.5 million New Yorkers provide unpaid care to a family member or loved one. These caregivers play a critical role in the health care system, providing tasks ranging from simple day-to-day care to complex medical procedures. The physical, financial, and emotional impact of caregiving is significant and can contribute to caregiver stress, loss of income, and development of chronic conditions. With the passage of New York State’s Caregiver Advise, Record and Enable (CARE) Act and Governor Cuomo’s $67.5 million initiative to support Alzheimer’s caregivers, the time is ripe to build on this momentum to support caregivers. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded AARP Foundation a grant to convene a statewide summit to discuss how caregivers can be provided with the recognition, knowledge, and support they need to remain effective and productive in their caregiving roles.

  • Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, Inc. Enhanced Drug-Pricing Transparency to Reduce Costs for Consumers and the State Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $123,207

    Rising prescription drug prices have become a major focus of public discourse over the past several years. While the costs of most prescription drugs have grown, the costs of specialty drugs have risen much faster than traditional medications. This is a result of a complicated system where patients pay coinsurance rates or deductibles at the pharmacy based on a drug’s full list price, rather than the lower rebated price that a payer has negotiated with the manufacturer. As a result, many patients pay more for drugs through their insurance plan than they would if they paid out of pocket without insurance. The higher costs borne by consumers often lead to higher rates of prescription abandonment. Although New York State has taken steps to address this issue by passing budgetary measures to cap the growth of prescription drug spending in the State’s Medicaid program, more needs to be done to protect health care consumers. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research (MI) a grant to research how transparency reforms would affect drug pricing and reduce patients’ out-of-pocket costs.
