Mount Sinai to expand EHR access, care services through partnership with One Medical

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System and One Medical, a primary care, membership-based clinic group in San Francisco, formed an agreement to increase EHR interoperability among healthcare providers and expand care services to patients in New York, Benefits Pro reports.

Mount Sinai Health System patients will now be able to access care at any of One Medical's nine New York-based primary care clinics, in addition to the health system's specialists and hospitals. One Medical members will be able to access care at Mount Sinai in addition to specialists outside of the health system.

The agreement will allow Mount Sinai and One Medical physicians to share patient information and access each other's EHR systems.

One Medical CEO Amir Rubin told Benefits Pro the company's goal is to make accessing physicians easier for patients because "consumers are frustrated with the complexity of accessing care."

One Medical's mobile app lets members book appointments and communicate with physicians directly. The primary-care network has partnered with various other health systems, including Renton, Wash.-based Providence St. Joseph Health, UC San Diego Health and UC San Francisco Health.
