The NY Links measures look to assess the strength of linkage and retention systems in all aspects of the patients care. For ease and consistency two of the measures are the same as the in+care Campaign measures and three are the same as the Linkage, Retention and Treatment Adherence (LRTA program).
Please Note: NYlinks is currently analyzing the NYS Quality of Care Program’s Quality Review process for 2017 to see whether we can utilize the data being submitted through the organizational cascade process as NYLinks data. We hope to have a better understanding of these processes by the end of 2016 and will communicate with everyone the first week of the new year (January 2017).
This tool can be used to generate the data needed for the New York Links Retention Measure. The tool is designed as an excel spreadsheet and all providers need to do is enter visit data and the sheet will automatically calculate numerator and denominator for that measure.
