Staten Island Performing Provider System (SI PPS) is an alliance of clinical and social service providers focused on improving the quality of care and overall health for more than 180,000 Staten Island residents who receive Medicaid or are uninsured. There are more than 12,000 healthcare workers in its network, and 70 partners across the continuum of care, with Staten Island University Hospital and Richmond University Medical Center co-leading the network. SI PPS is one of 25 similar groups created across New York State to help healthcare and community-based providers reform the Medicaid system to transition to a value-based payment system based on patient outcomes.
