ALBANY, N.Y. – November 2, 2016 – CDPHP today announced the promotion of Brian J. Morrissey to president, Practice Support Services, LLC and executive vice president, Partner Solutions, CDPHP. Morrissey’s promotion coincides with the formation of Practice Support Services, a subsidiary of CDPHP that will protect the independent practice of medicine by providing local physicians with the resources needed to succeed at value-based contracting.
Practice Support Services will serve as the umbrella organization to the recently announced Acuitas Health, a population health services organization created in partnership with CapitalCare Medical Group, as well as Strategic Solutions Management Corporation, a Clifton Park-based medical billing and consulting company. Strategic Solutions and its 100+ employees will remain in Clifton Park.
“Brian’s dedication and years of experience made him the perfect fit to lead Practice Support Services,” said CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John D. Bennett. “I am proud to announce his promotion and the creation of a new entity that will allow CDPHP to continue its relentless pursuit of increasing the quality and affordability of health care in our community,” added Bennett.
Morrissey has more than 25 years of diverse experience in the health care industry. He joined CDPHP in 1999 and recently served as chief marketing officer. Morrissey was one of the early architects of the nationally recognized Enhanced Primary Care program, a patient-centered medical home model that rewards primary care doctors for quality over quantity. A recent study of EPC found the program saved more than $20 million in health care costs while improving a series of quality measures that include cancer screenings, immunizations, and well visits.
Established in 1984, CDPHP is a physician-founded, member-focused and community-based not-for-profit health plan that offers high-quality affordable health insurance plans to members in 24 counties throughout New York. CDPHP is also on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram.
