Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health has named Dr. Christopher Stanley the health system’s first chief population health officer as it focuses on making population health management a more integral part of its strategies.

Stanley was recently director of healthcare practice at Navigant Consulting, and is a former system vice president of population health for Catholic Health Initiatives. Sutter Health created his position as part of a senior leadership shift last April.

“I am thrilled to join such an innovative, collaborative and community-focused system as Sutter Health as a senior leader,” Dr. Stanley said in a released statement.  ”In this new role, I look forward to aligning and advancing the strengths that exist within the organization to further benefit patients, families and employers across Northern California.”
