Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida, has partnered with HealthSnap, a virtual care management platform, to support its chronic disease management programs.

The collaboration will expand a partnership launched earlier this year, for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), by focusing on Chronic Care Management (CCM).

Through the partnership, Mount Sinai will expand its in-house CCM program to bring the service offering to their Medicare patient population at scale.

The partnership is expected to be implemented in July across Mount Sinai Primary Care.

It would support more than 4,000 patient lives by the end of this year, with plans to reach up to 10,000 patients living with chronic conditions over time.

Mount Sinai Medical Center general medicine chief Clifford Medina said: “Mount Sinai Primary Care is committed to delivering care that is accessible, comprehensive, and evidence-based, with a patient-centric approach.

“HealthSnap’s extensive clinical resources, innovative platform, and proven patient outcomes enable us to provide proactive chronic condition care at scale across our entire primary care patient population.”

HealthSnap enables care teams to proactively manage chronic conditions, helping patients stay connected to their care teams between clinic visits, and improving patient outcomes.

Mount Sinai’s RPM and CCM programs, powered by HealthSnap, will support patients with hypertension, diabetes, congestive heart failure, COPD, asthma, obesity, and osteoporosis.

Currently, EPIC integration has already been completed, providing clinicians at Mount Sinai with a centralised platform to gather, analyse, and act on patient data, along with filing claims.

HealthSnap co-founder and CEO Samson Magid said: “We designed HealthSnap as a fully integrated virtual care management platform that is able to serve the largest health systems in the nation – from clinical resources to HITRUST certification to EPIC integration.

“It is a priority for us to remove the friction from scaling RPM & CCM programs that can benefit so many people living with chronic conditions.

“Mount Sinai is a great example of an organization that serves a diverse patient population with multiple locations across the state, and we are looking forward to growing our partnership.”
