2009 – 2011DOWNLOAD FULL REPORT
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) represents an important cohort of primary care providers in New York.
Of the 206 hospitals that are part of HANYS, there are more than 160 hospitals with ambulatory clinics that receive more than 11.3 million clinic visits a year. In addition, several of the outpatient departments report that more than 70% of their patient population is covered by Medicaid.
In 2008, the New York Health Foundation (NYHealth) launched its NYHealth Diabetes Campaign in response to the growing epidemic of diabetes across the State. To advance the Campaign among hospital outpatient clinics, NYHealth made a grant to HANYS to engage its network of outpatient health clinics, and provide them with technical assistance to adopt a new model of care to improve the care and outcomes of patients with diabetes.
