Advocacy and Engagement

(Co-chaired by: Harvey Rosenthal and Trilby de Jung)

Goal: The goal of the Advocacy and Engagement Subcommittee is to:

  • design a program that incentivizes patients to make lifestyle choices proven to improve health and reduce downstream costs (i.e. reduce Emergency Room visits);
  • focus on patient's rights to know the incentives that affect their care and how to communicate to patients and providers; and
  • develop strategies around what and when information related to VBP and DSRIP will be communicated to beneficiaries, working in close collaboration with consumer advocates.
