population health outcomes
ST. LOUIS—November 1, 2017 —Lumeris, the industry leader in value-based care solutions, today announced a multi-year collaboration with Mount Sinai Health System, New York City’s largest integrated delivery system, to provide value-based care managed services. Under the terms of the agreement, Lumeris will provide operational support enabled by its industry-leading technology, to further Mount Sinai’s population health management objectives.
“Our ability to engage physicians and help them to perform better in value-based arrangements was a primary reason for Mount Sinai to choose Lumeris as a partner,” said Nigel Ohrenstein, senior vice president, Northeast and national accounts. “To achieve our shared goals, Mount Sinai will be leveraging our proven, best-in-class physician engagement, care management and clinical practices to drive improved outcomes for their employed physicians and those affiliated with their clinically integrated network.”
Niyum Gandhi, executive vice president and chief population health officer for Mount Sinai Health System, shared, “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.”
Using Lumeris’ proven business model to provide better outcomes for consumers and reduce costs, Mount Sinai anticipates doubling the number of lives covered under value-based arrangements.
“Mount Sinai is one of the country’s top healthcare organizations and is committed to delivering safe, high-quality and high-value care,” said Mike Long, Lumeris’ chief executive officer. “Their strong team has already initiated a program to manage the health of patients covered under at-risk, value-based care programs, and has made great strides. Their decision to partner with Lumeris is a testament to our proven methodology that delivers speed to value and remarkable outcomes, regardless of whether organizations are just beginning to formulate a strategy or if they want to accelerate their existing efforts.”
Lumeris serves as a long-term operating partner for organizations that are committed to the transition from volume- to value-based care and delivering extraordinary clinical and financial outcomes. We guide health systems and providers through seamless transitions from volume to value, enabling them to deliver improved and more affordable care across populations—with better outcomes. And, we work collaboratively with payers to align contracts and engage physicians in programs that drive high-quality, cost-effective care with satisfied consumers—and engaged physicians.
