Niyum Gandhi is the Executive Vice President and Chief Population Health Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System. In this role, he oversees Mount Sinai’s transition from a primarily fee-for-service model of care to one that is focused on value and risk-based population health.
Niyum leads Mount Sinai Health Partners and helps align the Health System’s clinical and economic transformations in support of Mount Sinai’s vision to be the leading population health manager in the competitive New York market, as well as the best possible partner to plan sponsors, health insurers, and other population health managers who are responsible for total cost of care of patient groups. This includes fostering care management and clinical model redesign to ensure that high-value care is delivered by the Health System and its partners, and working with payers and employers to establish the new economic models that support the delivery of value-based care.
Prior to his position at Mount Sinai, Niyum served as a Partner in the Health and Life Sciences consulting practice of Oliver Wyman in Chicago, where he focused on value-based health care strategy and transformation for physician groups, hospitals, and health plans. At Oliver Wyman, Niyum also worked with a variety of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other population health management companies, helping them design and implement value-based clinical models, develop value-based contracts and integrated product distribution strategies, align physician incentives toward value, and establish the appropriate infrastructure to support population health management.
Niyum holds an A.B. in economics and finance from Harvard University. He has authored several articles on ACOs, payer/provider partnerships, and physician engagement, and served as a conference speaker on a variety of issues related to population health and value-based care.
