Mount Sinai Health System has teamed up with urgent care provider CityMD to expand urgent care service throughout New York. The partnership will combine Mount Sinai’s network of providers with CityMD’s urgent and clinical care management expertise to develop a unique model that ensures patients have timely access to healthcare.
A key component of the partnership will establish quality metrics for a shared preferred provider network to ensure patients receive high-quality care and immediate access to specialty care when needed. Additionally, CityMD and Mount Sinai will share EMRs to allow faster access to patient data, improved outcomes and promote value-based care aimed at improving the health of the community.
“Our goal is to provide convenient and coordinated access to quality, cost-effective care at all levels,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System in a statement. “Many Patients treated in the urgent care setting have chronic conditions that would benefit from prompt, efficient follow-up care by highly trained primary care physicians and specialists. Mount Sinai’s vast primary and specialty care network combined with CityMD’s urgent care network will create more effective healthcare that meets the needs of New York’s diverse populations.”
