Camden Core Model
Person-centered care management for individuals with complex needs.
We work directly with individuals with complex health and social needs to meet their own goals for health and well-being — and with partners locally and across the state to redesign systems to address the barriers our participants face.
I felt somebody really cares about me … I'm living, and I'm not here by myself. And I think that what's made me, you know, actually do it … I started taking my medication, I started, you know, getting out."Diego," care management participant
The Camden Coalition... [is an] exemplar of the kind of multidisciplinary, multisector efforts that will be necessary to address the complex needs of individuals and communities and make a lasting impact by eliminating health disparities, with the goal of achieving health equity.National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, "The future of nursing 2020-2030: Charting a path to achieve health equity"
U.S. healthcare and social services systems deliver medical, behavioral health, and social services in ways that do not always meet people’s needs, especially for those with complex health and social needs.
In response, the Camden Coalition designs person-centered programs and new models that address chronic illness and social barriers to good health. Supported by a robust data infrastructure, cross-sector convening, and shared learning, our community-based programs deliver better care to Camden and South Jersey.
