Mount Sinai partners with Contessa Health to expand home care program

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System partnered with Nashville, Tenn.-based Contessa Health, a company that manages home acute care bundled payment programs, to expand its existing home care program to new markets.

Mount Sinai's program, Mobile Acute Care Team, launched in 2014 to provide hospital-level care to Medicare patients with specific acute illness in their homes. The partnership with Contessa Health will allow MACT to care for patients with different health insurance plans and treat a wider range of diseases. Additionally, Mount Sinai will add an option to receive post-surgical care at home.

Contessa Health will manage a bundled payment program to ensure a fixed price is established in advance to deliver all services within an episode of care. 

"This partnership with Contessa Health is critical to the overall transformation of our health system, underscoring Mount Sinai's commitment to creating an innovative health care system that emphasizes outpatient, ambulatory, and home-based care with remote monitoring capabilities," said Niyum Gandhi, Mount Sinai Health System's executive vice president and chief population health officer.
