The Camden Coalition is one of four New Jersey Regional Health Hubs, serving as an intermediary between the state government, Medicaid recipients in our South Jersey region, and the organizations that serve those community members.
Together, we are working to build a cohesive ecosystem of care for Medicaid recipients in South Jersey. Signed into law by Governor Murphy in February 2020, the Regional Health Hub model is unique to New Jersey, and was developed by the Camden Coalition, state leadership, and partner organizations across the state to address the fragmented and siloed systems of care that lead to poor outcomes and experiences for New Jersey’s Medicaid patients.
This model carries on the work begun through New Jersey’s Medicaid Accountable Care Organization Demonstration Project, and was specifically designed to stitch together multiple systems at a regional level. Regional Health Hubs bring together multiple sectors to address state priorities and other pressing health concerns in each of four regions across the state.
Currently, the four New Jersey Regional Health Hubs are:
- Camden Coalition
- Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition
- Health Coalition of Passaic County
- Trenton Health Team
Per the legislation establishing the Regional Health Hubs, each Regional Health Hub must:
- Operate a Health Information Platform;
- Convene community stakeholders, at least quarterly; and
- Serve state departments as a strategic planning partner.
Other activities include:
- Planning and executing population and patient-level health interventions;
- Operating a community resource inventory;
- Performing a health needs assessment for the region;
- Other quality improvement activities;
- Screening protocols on social determinants of health;
- Care management and coordination; and
- Providing an annual report on the health goals and needs of the region.
