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 Winter Conference special!

We are thrilled at the success of the Winter Event we hosted along with the New Jersey Chapter of HFMA, entitled “Meeting Consumer Needs in an Era of Population Health”.  We were able to secure many healthcare thought leaders to enhance the education of our members for the day. Our panel discussion on Population health were led by the Healthcare leaders in NJ 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, President of a well-known Security firm, a Pharmacist and a Lawyer.  We also received an update on the new rules around MU stage 3 from a legal analyst. The exhibit was buzzing during the day with over 20 healthcare vendors in support of conference.  Both members of HFMA & HIMSS were able to submit for their respective CPE & CPHIMS credits to enhance their education goals.  The day was capped with a networking event at the Ocean Place Resort before everyone headed home. 

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