Greedy Antidote Dr Jeffrey Brenner Hotspoting health care

The Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers was created with the overarching mission to improve the health status of all Camden residents, by increasing the capacity, quality, and access of care in the city.

Unlike many service and social organizations in the city, the Coalition does not provide long-term services to patients, but rather focuses on creating solutions from the providers and health systems side of care. With this in mind, the Coalition embodies the following core principles:

The Coalition is a facilitator of discussion and strategy design among healthcare providers and services, rather than a program in itself. We seek to improve coordination among the various points of care and service that exist in the city and affect more efficient access to these resources for Camden residents.
Strategizing and plan development cannot be adequately implemented without fluid systems of communication. Efficiency of care – especially across specialties and institutions – can be easily impeded by a simple breakdown of communication. Often, this system needs to be in place before strategies are even set in place.
No single organization or health system has enough resources to solve a citywide problem. Solutions require collaboration among all stakeholders to provide the adequate support for implementation.
Initiatives need to be data-driven in order to direct the most effective strategies and to understand where to dedicate resources. Data must also be utilized to appropriately evaluate project activities.
While seed funding and demonstration projects can help determine need, the organization and the initiatives it pursues must be sustainable in order to affect and expect long-term outcomes.
