Protect Yourself From Flu

Last updated: January 19, 2018, 12:14 pm

California and Contra Costa are seeing high levels of flu activity. We remind the community to take the following steps to prevent the spread of flu.

  • Get your flu vaccine
  • Clean hands often with soap and water or with hand sanitizer
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Stay home when you’re sick

People with flu like symptoms should call their health plan's Advice Nurses to get help with self-care or to help them decide if they need to visit an urgent care clinic, make an appointment with their health care provider or go to an emergency room. Rarely is emergency room needed for flu or respiratory issues.

Contra Costa Health Plan members and Contra Costa residents who do not have health coverage can call 1-877-661-6230 and select option 1 to speak to an Advice Nurse.

Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP) program

Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP) program (2010-2015)

CCRMC and Health Centers' mission is to "care for and improve the health of all people in Contra Costa County with special attention to those most vulnerable to health problems." In working toward achieving this mission, CCRMC and Health Centers has embarked on an ambitious plan to expand access to care and enhance quality through a robust effort called the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments (DSRIP) program.

There are three primary goals to DSRIP: improve population health, enhance the patient experience, and reduce/control the cost of care. In this unique state and federal joint program, public hospitals receive government funds for achieving specific performance improvement milestones. This pay-for-performance program is one component of California's Section 1115 Medicaid waiver, which is sometimes referred to as the state's "Bridge to Health Care Reform."

While large-scale overhauls can take a decade or more to achieve, DSRIP, which began in November, 2010, requires CCRMC and California's other public hospitals and health systems to reach an average of 217 milestones in five categories within five years. The categories include: Infrastructure Development; Innovation and Redesign; Population-Focused Improvement; Urgent Improvements in Care; and HIV Transition Projects.
