Contracting and Management Services (CAMS), a division of Public Health Solutions, administers millions of dollars in public health funding through “master contracts” with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH). Since 1991, CAMS has funded services for people living with HIV/AIDS under the federal Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act, and since 2000, for HIV prevention services. CAMS contracts with community-based organizations, hospitals, clinics, mental health clinics and other organizations for services in areas as diverse as early childhood mental health, cancer screening, substance abuse treatment and risk reduction, family planning and HIV/AIDS. In addition, CAMS has recently expanded its portfolio of contracting services to include a broad array of non-HIV/AIDS public health and human services initiatives.
CAMS implements innovative reimbursement and monitoring approaches, and helps service providers to meet their contractual goals through direct technical assistance and partnering with NYCDOHMH for program assistance. CAMS promotes effective service delivery, program and fiscal integrity by setting and communicating standards, and by collecting, analyzing and reporting on program data.
