IHANY Newsletter – September 2022
Population Health Structure/CIN Changes
Please read this communication sent on August 29 by Kristen Mucitelli-Heath, Senior Vice
President, Population Health, Advocacy, St. Joseph’s Health and St. Peter’s Health
Partners, regarding our population health structure.
We are glad to share several evolutions of our population health structure across both St.
Peter’s Health Partners and St. Joseph’s Health and our associated clinically integrated
networks (IHANY-SPHP and CNYAIM-SJH). Our excitement is based on the potential we
see in leveraging the great talent we have in both systems, so that the whole is greater
than the sum of its parts.
We are excited to extend the influence of the talent we have across New York by
integrating two passionate leaders and teams and expanding the work to be regional in
scope. Brian Pinga, currently the Director of Quality Improvement for IHANY, will
assume the role of Regional Director, Population Health Quality and Performance.
Adriana Quiroga-Garcia, currently the System Population Health Performance
Manager, Ambulatory for St. Joseph’s Health and CNYAIM, will assume the role of
Regional Manager, Population Health Quality and Performance. Both Adriana and
Brian have been standouts in their passion and dedication to advancing the performance
of our employed and affiliated physician partners and are recognized for the tremendous
advancements their efforts have effected. The teams of Brian and Adriana will be
combined in one reporting structure and both clinically integrated networks will benefit
from their combined focus.
