7:18 am
will be approximately, $1.98 billion for fiscal year 2015-2016 and that will be drawing $1.3 billion in revenues and the balance is joint chiefs of staff apart if the city we'll show details in the presentation the numbers i'm showing you today are estimates because of the continue to move throughout the process as the city makes adjustment to the growth and other assumptions flying our budget but that's the general picture you'll see you'll notice the total amount is very close to compared to last year one of the primary reasons i'm sure you're aware of we've had for each of the last two years a significant expenditures associated with the new san francisco generalize
7:19 am
including the foreclosure and fixtures and equipment program and that's leaving the budget it is offset by other growth including employee salary and benefits and operational costs associated with the new hospital you end up with essentially something that will be close to a wash so the big picture for us as and discussions last time we've been focusing on how to continue to make progress on some of the initiate from the past year's budget those are focused on the implementation of the affordable health care act and the integration of the department at the same time move forward with the next major implementation an investment in our it system we've tried to structure this
7:20 am
budget so we're living within our maples and balancing around the investment we anticipate will be required for next week to move that the electronic medical records and some of the it infrastructure programs forward at the pace we believe we need to get to the timeline that bill will be presenting later today, we verify in this proposed is budget $19.7 million dollars available to fund it that's the estimated amount the it division has called out to meet that program aggressively. >> so i will briefly go through some of the proposed initiative you have detail in your packets i'll not try to describe everybody or everything we're
7:21 am
happy to respond to questions we've breakdown those in the past into categories the first of those is the budget nile initiatives changes in primaries but initiative that are either cost neutral or generate sufficient new revenues to cover the costs of investment the first is a, you know change general medical clinic at san francisco general hospital and adding staff there to improve our revenue capture and billing we believe that will be cost neutral probably a little bit more down the rod but we're budget it as costs neutral that was in response to some analysis we've been doing over the past 6 months to a year internally with the controller's office that identified that opportunity and the second review neutral
7:22 am
initiative informed and nutrition services this is a swap where we've been urging a contract provide at san francisco adjoin for food address nutrition services brichg that with the expiation of the contract bringing those services book in house taking the a statement from the contract and applying those to in house staffing to support the program mental healths we've received fund in h s a to provide the mental health services to children in foster care they have the funding and asked us to increase our services to those kids we're adding staffing that is fully supported by revenue recovery from the budget neutral place it is a good opportunity to expand some important programming mental health services act we've
7:23 am
talked about that and hearings at this commission over the past several months additional money coming in and this is a statewide tax on those with incomes over one million dollars a portion to support of the mental health services act and gotten additional revenue because of the program for initiatives including the implementation of the laura's law program that the commission go discussed in 2014 and we have the mental health director here if i have questions on details about that. >> so the next section emerging needs is the new expenditures
7:24 am
there are a few items first and i kit psych services at general hospital especially the j fcc we've talked about some of the needs we've identified some needs for improvement at sf g h on lightens management to make sure we're having the right level of care for the patient and in service quality we've got new staffing we're polk projecting that will be a cost in the first year and necessary cost for that program and in the second year as we improve our reduce our lower level of care to offset those costs so it will be a pragmatic improvement to result in more revenue in the second year workforce development this has been a big priority for the
7:25 am
department as we're landmarking down the road turn over in the staff and significant increase in the upcoming retirements and in addition to that looking internally how to make sure our staff have opportunity for movement and growth within the department and opportunities to advance so we've not go got on initiative to program those dollars towards that effort shall we - >> keep on - okay the cost in the second year is offset by savings we're going to be moving some of the it systems for human resources on the system that allows us to get out of contracts and we reprogram
7:26 am
those savings for if effort as you can see the general fund costs in the second year is small since we've leerlg funded it internally arrest jail health behavorial health services a prey reprogramming of some contracted staff that are currently staffed through health right 360 we're moving some of the staff in house to improve the coordination and integration of those services but there's a cost associated that state population health division again has been one of the main focuses over the last couple of years and in particular how to build the infrastructure and any coordinate the efforts of population with our networked so the two are really working handing with one another a
7:27 am
number of additions and populations in the health division that division has seen some deterioration through grant offer the last several years and lacks the flexibility it need to be able to use general fund dollars for core programs and if you have questions on that tom as is here we're anticipating we'll continue to make some investments in the population health side that's been underfunded aid really try to focus on creating capacity to do the population health management that aligns with what we're doing on that side of the house at the it helped and black african-american health initiated that is a program we've talked about quite a bit at this committee there are
7:28 am
staff positions and contracts funding included in that initiative to move forward aggressively on that savings noicht we have a couple of expenditure changes we're using to balance all this out and fund some of the it investments own pharmacy we have two years ago or i guess 3 years ago appropriated an increase in pharmacy costs for the protecting height program which we needed at the time since that program is being phased out and those people that were foreman in the program have been moved on to insurance we have general fund savings we're able to pull out of the program and reprogram for other uses so that is $7 million per year the second line is a combination of second see third combination
7:29 am
of various staffing changes throughout the department we are not ramping up our spending and primary care as fast as anticipated in last year's budget. >> couple of new initiative that have not increased at the rate we had budgeted that included potential xoongs into a new facility but also just details in being able to ramp up and doing the hiring as fast as we hoped budget one time primary care for the first year and in the second year we have a cost which is what the needed at san francisco general for the new hospital this will be funding that allows the hospital once the hiring to ramp up the goal of 2 hundred and 10 staff beds
7:30 am
this is part of the commitment to hit that number at san francisco general hospital you have savings in the first year and cost in the second so big picture and now i'm moving through this at a curry level it comes down to as you can see the balancing picture here revenue increases costs and savings all add up to $19.3 million at the bottom right on this slide that's the balance that is available and we're programming that balance again towards our it program and we'll in a couple of minutes later in the agenda have more details from bill kim about the programs but that's our commitment to the electronic records project we'll be
