Jeffery Brenner MD

Jeffery Brenner, MD is a nationally recognized thought leader in leveraging population health data and analytics to address and support the population health needs of a community.  Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers, and community residents to collaborate, he founded the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers in 2003, where he has since served as Executive Director. Brenner’s innovative use of data to identify high-need, high-cost patients in a fragmented system and improve their care was profiled in the 2011 New Yorker article “The Hot-spotters” by writer and surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande, and on PBS Frontline. In 2013 he was honored with the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship for his work, and in 2014 he was elected to the Institute of Medicine.

Thank You for making our Spring Conference special!

We are thrilled at the success of the Spring Event we hosted at Rutgers University, entitled “Leveraging Technology for Transitions of Care”.  We were able to secure many healthcare thought leaders to enhance the education of our members for the day. Our panel discussion on Healthcare Data Analytics were led by the Healthcare leaders in NJ and was moderated by Dr. Shafiq Rab from the provider community.  The conversation & questions were exciting & informative.  Our panel on security capped off the morning session with 4 leaders from the cross section of leaders in healthcare, which included a CISO from a major hospital, Lawyer of a well-known Security legal firm and an officer from the Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness from the State of NJ.  The President of the NJ VNA Home Health Group discussed the role of Technology in improving home health and care transitions.  We also received an update on the emerging technologies that support the transition of care from an industry technology partner/consultant. The exhibit was buzzing during the day with over 30 healthcare vendors in support of conference.  HIMSS members were able to submit for their respective CEU & CPHIMS credits to enhance their education goals. 

Once again, thank you to our members, sponsors and volunteers for making this a successful event!
