Project Management Office

Our Charge

Project Management Office ImageryThe SCC Project Management Office (PMO) was established to provide consistent applications of sound project management principles, best practices, standard status reporting, templates and tools for all DSRIP programs. We believe when project governance is provided through a centralized, dedicated organizational entity, it will lead to positive results and a greater probability of project success.

Project Management Office Functions

  • Utilize Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®)-based methodology as defined by the National Project Management Institute.
  • Staff Project Managers with full-time responsibility for managing the DSRIP project portfolio.
  • Encourage collaboration amongst our PPS partner organizations.
  • Support the DSRIP project teams as a source for project management leadership and expertise.
  • Keep the project community informed through a robust communication strategy.
  • Report required status reports to stakeholders including the NYS Department of Health.
  • The PMO will be cognizant of all projects within the program. PMO will align like-scope requirements within projects into workgroups to deliver one project plan that can be used across multiple projects.
  • Cultural Competency Communication plan inclusive of languages and communication modalities to meet the language barriers which exist between partner, providers and patients.
  • Calendar-driven, support schedule and timeline by managing the critical path.

Project Management Software Tool

Performance Logic logoThe PMO has partnered with Performance Logic (PL), a sophisticated project management software tool to manage all DSRIP programs. PL will be used to monitor progress, share information and communicate project status updates. Project Managers can more effectively communicate real-time information to SCC partners by using PL tools such as email web forms, project templates and status dashboards. Risks and issues are recorded in PL and a document repository allows for storing and sharing project-related documents. With its standardized, results-oriented project management tools and features, PL helps the PMO reach its goals.


Learning Collaboratives

As the PMO moves from program design/development to program implementation, we will be convening program workgroups and committees in the form of Learning Collaboratives. The Learning Collaborative approach focuses on spreading, adopting and adapting best practices across multiple settings and introducing opportunities in organizations that promote the delivery and implementation of effective programs. We promote program integration through this strategy and will invite different provider types (i.e. Hospitals, PCP, BH, SNFs) and programs (i.e. TOC, INTERACT, etc.) to support building communication lines across our integrated delivery system partners.

SCC Learning Collaboratives are shared-learning sessions with topics designed specifically for organizations participating directly or indirectly in the DSRIP programs. The goal of the collaboratives is to create a community of knowledge that can help participants accelerate program implementation, systematic change and make lasting breakthroughs that meets or exceeds program expectations.


Project Workgroup & Committee Engagement

The SCC PMO fosters continued engagement and collaboration through our robust network of workgroups and committees highlighted below.

Program Management Teams represents program stakeholders across the SCC’s PMO, Network Development & Performance Team and clinical program leads. Program Management efforts have been categorized into two main functions: (1) Program Operations/Process Improvement, (2) Performance Improvement. 

Program Operations functions include operationalizing external stakeholder engagement activities, such as Learning Collaboratives, operationalizing Special Projects regionally and county wide, deploying process improvement initiatives, including process improvement activities, monitoring DSRIP project requirements, and supporting all Performance Improvement Activities. 

Performance Improvement functions include operationalizing the proactive performance improvement activities, the PI Corrective Action Planning Process, monitoring network provider attribution, sharing and monitoring program performance metrics/data and identifying and deploying gap closing strategies across HUBs by identifying key providers to engage.
