Our Performing Provider System

Our Performing Provider System (PPS) is led by NuHealth (Nassau University Medical Center), in alliance with Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Catholic Health Services of Long Island. These three principals have a long history of serving the health care needs of the communities they serve.

Through our principals, the Nassau Queens PPS has over 8,400 partners that include major safety net providers (entities that provide care to underserved and vulnerable populations), social service providers, housing agencies, community-based organizations, health plans, health homes, physicians, and the regional health information exchange, which provides the capability to exchange patient medical information among providers to enable increased efficiency and overall quality of health care for patients.

As PPS Lead, NuHealth interacts with the New York State Department of Health based on input from an Executive Committee consisting of representatives of the three principal partners. Each principal is responsible for spearheading the DSRIP projects with its providers and meeting the related DSRIP program reporting and documentation requirements.
