It’s been an exciting month as we’ve publicly announced the development of a national center to improve care for patients with complex needs, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies, and AARP. What’s been most important to me is that we’ve sent a message that the City of Camden is on the rise and recovering. Great things are happening here.

I’m surprised and humbled that what started as a small project in Camden, New Jersey fourteen years ago is impacting the national dialogue of healthcare reform. Together we’re fostering new conversations about our nation’s most vulnerable patients and we’re driving a conversation about the mismatch between the biopsychosocial needs of patients and the services we provide in healthcare.

Our work together is a symbol for what can be accomplished when health care and social service systems work together in a data-driven environment and convene around one table aligned to a common goal.

While the national center is an exciting opportunity, we have so much more work to do to make Camden the healthiest city in the country. With exciting initiatives like the Seven-Day Pledge reconnecting recently hospitalized patients to primary care, our Health Information Exchange sharing vital health data across formerly siloed organizations, and our Housing First project providing stable, dignified housing for our most medically and socially complex patients, we’ll remain laser-focused on advancing our work in Camden.

The national center will be a way to connect our local work with other great ideas and initiatives emerging from innovators around the country. The national center will convene, curate, connect, and educate. Together we can build an exciting new field and movement for care of the most vulnerable and complex patients, both here in Camden and across the country. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
