United Hospital Fund and health care technology consortium Junto Health are partnering to share information and expertise that will benefit both organizations.
Junto helps large health-related organizations—including major health systems, health insurers, and pharmaceutical companies—navigate the unique challenges and opportunities they face in the era of digital medicine. Junto advises management teams on their innovation strategies, analyzes market trends, and facilitates collaboration with other Junto members to achieve shared goals, pool risk, and reduce costs. Junto also makes critical connections between its members and health care technology start-ups and investors.
Current Junto Health members include Northwell Health, NewYork-Presbyterian, Mount Sinai, Montefiore Health, EmblemHealth, Novo Nordisk, Assuta Medical Center, Allied Physicians Group, Boehringer Ingelheim, AMAG Pharmaceuticals, and DXC Technology.
“United Hospital Fund is pleased to partner with Junto Health, which has its finger on the pulse of what's new in information technology and how health care organizations, working independently or collaboratively, can meet their goals of deploying digital strategies to advance the well-being of their patients and clients,” said Anthony Shih, MD, MPH, president of United Hospital Fund. “By working with each other to leverage our respective expertise, both of our organizations will be stronger.”
Junto's CEO Doug Hayes also expressed enthusiasm about the relationship. “United Hospital Fund has a great reputation as a knowledgeable and independent voice in the New York health policy arena—and as a catalyst for positive change in areas like payment reform and quality improvement—so we at Junto look forward to cross-pollinating ideas and collaborating to improve care for the patients of New York and beyond,” he said.
