Wellforce CIN Board of Trustees

The Wellforce Clinically Integrated Network is governed by a 12-person Board of Trustees comprising eight practicing primary care and specialty physicians. The Chair of the Board is Dr. Michele Crage. Additional Physician Trustees include Drs. David Criss, Dan Driscoll, Mark Gilchrist, Karen Freund, Kelli Kennedy, and Peter Roman. Four other Trustees include a Wellforce hospital representative (Jody White, CEO of Circle Health), an independent Trustee (to be named), and two ex officio Trustees: Wellforce’s Chief Physician Executive (Dr. Michael Wagner) and Clinically Integrated Network President (Emily Young, Interim President).

NEQCA Legacy Advisory Committee

The Wellforce CIN Board has several Committees to support decision-making, including a Finance & Funds Flow Committee, Performance & Quality Committee, Nominating & Governance Committee, and two Legacy Advisory Committees (one for NEQCA, one for Lowell General Physician Hospital Organization).

The purpose of the NEQCA Legacy Advisory Committee is to monitor the run-out of payer contracts established prior to the Wellforce CIN’s launch in July 2021. The following former NEQCA Board members now serve as Legacy Advisors to assure continuity and consistency in the application of previously approved population health and funds flow methodologies.
