NJ Spotlight Hosts Conference on ACOs & Healthcare Delivery System Reform

February 26, 2014

If Dr. Jeffrey Brenner’s name sounds familiar, it’s for good reason.  One of New Jersey’s two MacArthur Fellows last year, Dr. Brenner is doing amazing work as the Founder and Executive Director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers.  We’ve heard him speak before and think you’ll enjoy hearing his perspective on modernizing our outmoded healthcare delivery system.

Accountable Care Organizations and Healthcare Delivery System Reform
Friday, February 28 from 8:30am to 2:00pm
RWJ Hamilton Center for Health & Wellness, Mercerville, NJ

This NJ Spotlight Conference will explore the ways that primary healthcare providers, hospitals, and clinics are rising to meet the challenges of a costly and possibly outmoded healthcare delivery system. The mechanism? A new delivery model known as an accountable care organization (ACO).

ACOs are not a one-size-fits-all solution, however. This two-session conference explores the differences between possible approaches, delves into what works and what doesn’t, and delivers the level of detail that NJ Spotlight is known for.

The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, a recent recipient of a MacArthur “genius grant” and medical director of Cooper Health System’s Urban Health Institute and the executive director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers.
