CHD has announced the appointment of Daniel J. Quinn as the organization’s new Vice President of Health Care Integration. Quinn will oversee the integration and ongoing management of Innovative Care Partners, LLC, a new, stand-alone, joint-venture organization that will provide care coordination services in western Massachusetts through the Community Partnership program.
The Community Partnership program is designed to provide accessible and effective coordination of care for people in the under-age-65 MassHealth population who have a history of costly claims and/or poorly integrated care. Care coordination is a mechanism though which teams of professionals work together to ensure that a patient’s overall health needs are being met and that the right care is being delivered in the right place at the right time and by the right person. Through care coordination, patient outcomes improve and costs decrease.
“We are excited to have Dan Quinn come on board to lead the integration of Innovative Care Partners, LLC,” said Jim Goodwin, President and CEO of CHD. “Dan combines wide-ranging experience as a health practitioner, business executive and entrepreneur with far-reaching vision for the potential of the Community Partnership concept. Under his leadership, Innovative Care Partners, LLC, will be ideally positioned to deliver cost-effective, patient centered, comprehensive, coordinated care to ensure that the under-age-65 MassHealth population receives appropriate and accessible care at managed cost.”
Mr. Quinn has held leadership roles in a variety of health-related organizations. Most recently, he was Western Regional Director for Beacon Health Options in Springfield, where he focused on network management and health care integration. At Beacon Health Options in Connecticut, he was the Director of Behavioral Health Home where he collaborated with the State of Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services implementing a cutting-edge population health program advanced through the Affordable Care Act.
In total, Mr. Quinn has more than 12 years of population health management experience in the managed care industry. In that time, he achieved the goals of improved health outcomes and cost-efficient delivery of care for entire populations. He also has 15 years of senior leadership experience in behavioral health organizations providing services across the country. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Quinn earned his Bachelor of Arts from Boston University, Master of Social Work from Simmons College School of Social Work, and Master of Business Administration from Western New England College.
