Today’s episode is the first in our new series on new models of Primary Care! Our first guest on the program is Niyum Gandhi, Executive Vice President and Chief Population Health Officer at Mount Sinai Health System. Niyum is responsible for leading Mount Sinai Health Partners and aligning clinical and economic transformations in support of Mount Sinai’s vision to be the leading population health manager in the region, as well as the best possible partner to the Health System’s broad physician community. His work includes fostering care management and clinical model redesign to ensure that high-value care is delivered by the Health System and its partners, and working with payers and self-funded employers to establish the new economic models that support the delivery of value-based care. Neil Patel, President of Healthbox, also joined this conversation.

In this episode we cover:

  • Niyum’s background, previous work around ACOs, and his role at Mount Sinai
  • If Niyum thinks entrepreneurs trying to build standalone primary care models creates more fragmentation or less in the system
  • How the Mount Sinai partnership with Oscar Health to open a primary-care clinic in Brooklyn came to be
  • What success in this Oscar Health partnership looks like
  • How Niyum is thinking about translating the benefits of this partnership to all of the Mt. Sinai patients
  • Patient feedback and the process of scaling what Mt. Sinai have learned to date in this partnership
  • If Niyum and Mt. Sinai feel these tight alignments with companies like Oscar Health is the way of the future
  • The other areas of innovation and transformation at Mt. Sinai the Niyum is focused on
