A message from the Department of Human Services:
The department made the difficult decision to cancel, pause, and reassess the emergency procurement for the RISE PA tool in its current form.
The decision was based on multiple factors, but the goal of the cancellation is to ensure that RISE PA has a sustainable path forward. Under an emergency procurement, the scope and length of the program would require modifications that impair our service delivery model and the extensive work done to date. Our motivations behind this decision are sustaining the tool and its intention to serve our clients and achieving our goal of improving coordination and quality of care over the long term for the people we serve.
If RISE PA is to be a sustainable, successful tool to help Pennsylvanians, providers, partners, and stakeholders, it is necessary to take this pause for a thorough review and determination of the right path forward.
