I am writing to inform you of the departure of Dr. Patrick Carroll from his role as chief medical officer of Integrated Care Partners (ICP). We are excited for Pat as he moves into an important role as chief medical officer of the Division of HealthCare Clinics with Walgreens, which is a tremendous opportunity. At the same time, we will feel the loss of his expertise and leadership.
Working with Tracy King and other members of the ICP leadership team, Pat has built a solid foundation for our care-management program and has played a major role in leading our efforts to transition from a fee-for-service payment environment to one based on value.
He has been collaborating with our physicians to establish quality performance standards and taking steps toward population-health management. He also worked with our team to implement ICP’s Medicare Shared-Savings Program and a number of shared-savings and collaborative arrangements with commercial insurance payers.
Thanks to his many years of experience working in quality improvement and with the forerunner of accountable care organizations, Pat has helped us put ICP in an excellent position to achieve success. Our ICP team will continue this work to lead the way in developing a new model of care in our new health care environment.
Please join me in thanking Pat for his great work and wishing him well in his new position.
James Cardon, MD
Executive Vice President and Chief Integration Officer
CEO, Integrated Care Partners
