Maimonides Medical Center's Department of Population Health aims to improve the health of the Brooklyn community through transformation of the healthcare delivery system and the development of processes to support integration, coordination and collaboration across a wide range of health and social services organizations.
Our Population Health initiatives include:
- Community Care of Brooklyn - DSRIP: New York State has worked with the federal government to initiate the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program , which will allow the state to reinvest over six billion dollars to improve healthcare for Medicaid beneficiaries and reduce avoidable hospital use by 25 percent over the next five years. Maimonides, building upon a strong foundation and deep experience developing and implementing collaborative care models through prior state and federal programs, is poised to transform the healthcare delivery system in Brooklyn. Maimonides has teamed up with over 350 provider organizations and over 2,400 physicians to establish Community Care of Brooklyn (CCB), a new model of coordinated care for Brooklyn's Medicaid population.
- The Brooklyn Health Home: The Brooklyn Health Home was established to coordinate medical and behavioral healthcare services for Medicaid patients. It is built on the foundation of a successful program developed at Maimonides Medical Center, along with many community based organizations with funding provided by New York State.
Maimonides' network of ambulatory health centers brings primary care services into neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. Our health centers serve the community and are tailored to meet the healthcare needs of the neighborhoods in which they are located.
Mental Health Services
Our Community Mental Health Center staff provides mental health services to our neighbors on a daily basis. After the September 11th tragedy, we offered support and help to individuals and families dealing with the loss of loved ones and members of their communities. We continue that support today.
We offer a wide range of community outreach programs, and we are a strong supporter of local schools and community organizations. Our medical staff works closely with neighborhood schools to provide mentoring, internship and volunteer opportunities for students.
