This was the first of a two-part webinar series on implications of the Camden Coalition’s RCT results, hosted by the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network (SIREN) at UCSF.

In 2020, a major article on “healthcare hotspotting” may have caught your eye. The article described findings from our four-year, prospective, 800-person randomized evaluation of the Camden Core Model, an innovative and comprehensive approach to care coordination for patients with very high use of healthcare services. The study found no differences in hospital utilization between patients randomly assigned to the Camden Core Model and those who received usual care. In 2023, two secondary analyses were published looking at intervention dosage and engagement. Then teaming back up with MIT’s J-PAL to publish a new analysis, we looked at more intermediate measures of care coordination. These studies help to explain the original RCT’s primary outcomes findings.

We welcomed a moderated panel discussion with Camden Coalition President and CEO Kathleen Noonan, Kedar Mate from Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and Damon Francis from Alameda Health System about the studies’ implications, and a brief presentation of each study’s findings with Amy Finkelstein from J-PAL and Aaron Truchil from the Camden Coalition.
