Mount Sinai wants to empty its beds

An ad for Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City says: “If our beds are filled, it means we’ve failed.”

The ad  explains how the new focus on population-health management means that “instead of receiving care that’s isolated and intermittent, patients receive care that’s continuous and coordinated, much of it outside the traditional hospital setting.”

The ad looks at Mount Sinai’s “tremendous emphasis on wellness programs”; its Mobile Acute Care Team, which treats patients at home for certain conditions that otherwise would land them in the hospital; and its Preventable Admissions Care Team, which works to  prevent readmissions  both through medical care and via help with such nonmedical matters affecting impact health and access to care as housing and literacy.
