DRAFT RHP 12 Plan Update


The Regional Healthcare Partnership (RHP) Plan Update for DY 7-8 for RHP 12 will be submitted to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) by the RHP 12 Anchor, University Medical Center, no later than April 30, 2018. As directed by HHSC, the Anchor is required to submit a series of macro-enable Excel templates populated with data entered by the anchor and each provider participating in the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. For RHP 12, this is a total of 36 Excel templates, each containing multiple tabs of data.

In effort to give stakeholders more user-friendly access to the proposed content of the RHP Plan Update, this DRAFT has been prepared in two sections, as described below:

 Section 1 contains data submitted by the providers and anchor:

  • RHP Anchor contacts

  • Listing of RHP Performing Providers, Hospitals participating only in the Uncompensated Care Pool, and Inter-Governmental Transfer (IGT) Entities

  • Valuations for each provider by year and DSRIP category

  • System components for each provider which will be included in their Category B reporting and estimated Patient Population by Provider

  • Measures and measure bundles selected by each provider

  • Total points in selected measures/bundles

  • Community Needs Assessment

  • Learning Collaborative Plan

 Section 2 contains:

  • An aggregated summary of proposed core activities for each outcome measure bundle

  • Driver diagrams which visually display the selected outcome measures (Category C) and the Core Activities (Category A) each provider has initially selected to achieve the outcomes


This information is being made available to stakeholders for their review and input as DSRIP providers continue to refine and finalize their decisions and submissions.

Stakeholders are invited to provide comments at the Stakeholder Forum and/or online between March 23 and April 26, 2018. Questions may be directed to

RHP 12 Regional Meeting & Stakeholder Forum

 As most of you know, on December 21, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved a five year renewal of Texas’ Medicaid 1115 Waiver. This renewal will allow the state to continue expanding managed care to Medicaid clients while also preserving supplemental payments to hospitals and other critical Medicaid providers. Specifically, this action authorizes four more years of federal match funding for the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program. Regional Healthcare Partnerships (RHPs) across the state are working to submit RHP Plan Updates to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission by April 30, 2018. These Plan Updates detail how eligible DSRIP providers will earn the incentive funds.

 RHP 12, which includes 47 counties, will host a Regional Meeting & Stakeholder Forum on Friday, March 23, 2018.  The purpose of this meeting is to present our updated regional community needs assessment (view here) and provide updates on our Updated Regional Healthcare Partnership plan. Opportunity for feedback on these two items will be available at the event and also on line when our final Plan is posted. After these two topics are discussed, we will have stations set up for providers to receive technical assistance/guidance to finalize completion of their provider template, if needed. All stakeholders are invited to attend.

 This meeting will take place in the McInturff Conference Center in Lubbock, Texas. Please register below if you plan on attending.
