Providence Business News conducted a Q&A with CCA Rhode Island General Manager Corey McCarty and Lifespan Senior Vice President of Primary Care and Population Health Dr. G. Alan Kurose. The pair discussed the new partnership between CCA and Lifespan, which will give CCA members in Rhode Island full access to Lifespan’s comprehensive system of hospitals, behavioral health services and primary care networks.
In addition to expanding the options available for CCA members, the collaboration is designed to combat healthcare inequities in Rhode Island.
“Our two organizations are hoping to complement one another in ways that will help us better understand and respond to gaps in the state’s health care system,” McCarty said. “We are both looking forward to collaborating on a shared mission of improving health outcomes in Rhode Island’s traditionally underserved communities.”
