A Community Health Center ACO Model – Thriving and Innovating
Community Care Cooperative (C3), a unique healthcare organization with a bold vision to transform the health of underserved communities by leveraging the collective strengths of federally qualified health centers. One of 17 MassHealth Accountable Care Organizations, our speaker, Christina Severin C3’s President and CEO, will share the story of C3’s founding in 2016 and how they’ve grown to a team of 50+ and have become the largest ACO FQHC-based ACO in the United States. She’ll also highlight what sets C3 apart from other players in the landscape, the financial, clinical, and IT models driving their work, and how they’re innovating in the health-related social needs space.
Christina Severin is the President & CEO of Community Care Cooperative (C3), a Massachusetts non-profit company organized as a federally qualified health center-based MassHealth Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Unlike any other independent MassHealth ACO, C3 is a primary-care driven organization and has a care model that seeks to address its members’ social, behavioral and physical health needs. In its first full year of business in 2018, C3 was recognized as a Top 100 Women Led business.
Immediately prior to this, Christina was an independent consultant, with engagements in both the public and private sectors. All of her engagements were working with clients on issues that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations. Most notably, following several high-profile tragedies, Christina spent 10-months working with the Department of Children and Families to implement several new child welfare policies agency-wide as part of an effort to enhance child safety and welfare.
Prior to this, Christina served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization (BIDCO), a value-based, physician and hospital network and an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). She also served as President of Network Health, a nonprofit Massachusetts health plan that was acquired by Tufts Health Plan, where she led the health plan’s dramatic growth and strategic direction.
Christina earned a Master of Public Health with a concentration in Health Services from Boston University School of Public Health, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
