There is a growing affordability crisis in health care
Many governments, employers and consumers will be unable to afford health care in the 2020s1. Primary care is difficult to find/access and is plagued by inconsistent care quality and poor customer service, resulting in increased cost as consumers self-refer to specialists and health issues go unmanaged. Purchasers of health care commonly experience 3 to 5 fold variance in the cost of specialty care, services commonly plagued by inconsistent quality and poor customer service. Mount Sinai Health Partners acknowledges these challenges and as a health care leader, in New York and nationally, we believe it is incumbent upon us to meet these challenges.
