Camden Coalition headlines new Harvard Center for Primary Care program
This summer, a new executive education program at the Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care will feature leaders from world-renowned primary care systems, including the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers. The program, Charting the Future of Primary Care, will engage participants in case studies and discussions that consider innovative, optimized primary care system design.
As part of this first-of-its-kind program, primary care system and health system leaders will spend four days learn about cutting-edge approaches to primary care from leading practices around the world: the Camden Coalition, Alaska’s Southcentral Foundation, Martin’s Point Health Care – Bangor, and Gezondheidscentrum de Roerdomp from the Netherlands.
The Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care works with patients, providers, and students to create new approaches to care. In summer 2015, the Center wrote about the Coalition in the Harvard Business Review as part of their case-based series on the Future of Primary Care.
“Since their inception in 2006, the Camden Coalition has been at the forefront of care management for complex patients. Over the years they have built a network of community partners, an innovative super-utilizer intervention, and a robust business model to deliver quality care at lower costs – all of which sparked the Center’s interest,” said Russ Phillips, Director of the Center for Primary Care.
The program will run June 9-12, 2016, in Boston, MA. For more information or to be placed on the waiting list for an application, please contact PrimaryCareEd@hms.harvard.edu.
