Mission & Vision

Collaborating for better health by improving successful outcomes, ensuring quality and increasing access to care.

CNY BHCC’s vision is to support its network and affiliate partners by making the full spectrum of integrated health services available in our region. We assist the process of entering into contracts with Managed Care Organizations, providing ongoing education on contract performance expectations, fostering population health management around societal determinants of health, and organizing a network around collective goals to set and meet shared health outcomes.



At CNY BHCC we believe in person-centered integrated health services, team based approaches to care planning, addressing social determinants of health to break down barriers to successful outcomes, the use of data and evidence based practices to provide better care and decision making, performance monitoring in an effort to ensure quality to our communities and an overall commitment to excellence.


Our History

In January 2018, New York State launched the New York Behavioral Health Value Based Payment Readiness Program (BH VBP) in an effort to improve health care quality and outcomes for low-income New Yorkers. Under the leadership of Helio Health, Inclusive Alliance IPA, Liberty Resources, and Upstate Cerebral Palsy and funding through the New York State Department of Health, NYS Office of Mental Health and the NYS Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, the CNY BHCC is working to organize itself in a manner that will further its mission, vision and values as well as successful behavioral and physical health outcomes for its communities. Leadership has created the CNY BHCC IPA (Independent Practice Association) through the CNY BHCC as a method of creating clinical and financial integration as well as utilizing the collective knowledge of our network to provide the best care possible.
