The Medical Society of the State of New Yjavascript:void(0);ork, together with the New York State Department of Health and EastPoint Health (a MSSNY Sub-contractor) and a statewide work group consisting of MSSNY member physicians, have been involved in a project called the Adirondack Patient Centered Medical Home Demonstration Pilot. 

This pilot will change the face of healthcare delivery in the Adirondack Park Region of New York State. The project focuses on improved access to care, collaborative care based on quality and evidenced-based guidelines and increased revenue to physicians. The project integrates Patient Centered Medical Home processes based on NCQA Practice Guidelines and also introduces a new concept called Physician Practice Support Organization or PPSO for short.

he participants named above have developed a Statewide PPSO Handbook which summarizes the activities engaged in by the physicians of this region to make this concept a reality. Please click on the link below to open or download this document to experience a summary of this project.
