E38: Niyum Gandhi – Population Health in the City that Never Sleeps
In this episode, we welcome Niyum Gandhi, Executive Vice President and Chief Population Health Officer at Mount Sinai, to discuss health system transformation, and how he tackles it in one of the most diverse cities in the world. Niyum shares the story behind his transition from Oliver Wyman to Mount Sinai, and the role key questions and visionary leaders took in making his leap. Hear Niyum talk about finding the leader who wasn’t afraid to be first to start the marathon of transforming a health system with a population health division to a population health management company that happens to own hospitals. He shares his insights on how we can shift from a health system designed to prevent death and treat illness to one designed to prevent illness and manage health. It starts with defining the problem differently. From there, we can design more creative and effective solutions. He’ll also share the importance of people in this transformation process. Ultimately our models are all about those we serve, and they are powered by those we work alongside. Take a listen to one of the brightest minds in health care who is paving a way for a better future. You’ll be both impressed and inspired!
