Mount Sinai hires Lumeris to boost population-health management

Share this:

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System is diving deeper into population health by choosing  St. Louis-based Lumeris to help improve its population-health- management initiatives.

Lumeris’s approach revolves around value-based care.  Nigel Ohrenstein, the company’s senior vice president for Northeast and national accounts, explained to Med City News that  Lumeris’s technology lets providers better manage the health of certain patient populations by  bringing together clinical and financial data to give providers a more complete picture of each patient.

“Our approach is about more than just clinical improvement. It’s about helping healthcare organizations to navigate the transition to the new business of value-based care,” he said.

Niyum Gandhi, Mount Sinai’s executive vice president and chief population health officer, said:

“As we rapidly embrace value-based care as a system, continuously improving our efficiency and quality to improve the overall health of our community is a critical priority. Mount Sinai has identified innovative collaborators to help support us in this journey, and we believe Lumeris can accelerate our ability to effectively and responsibly manage large populations in risk-based models.”

“They had already launched population health initiatives, which had been effective, but they wanted to go further, faster,” Mr. Ohrenstein told Med City News.

He said that Lumeris’s platform is already being launched  at Mount Sinai,  adding that it’s meant to aid the 150,000 patients now managed in risk-based contracts. Mount Sinai plans to double the number of individuals it  covers under value-based arrangements.
