Family physician Jeffrey Brenner and his staff at the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers serve some of the most medically complex patients in one of America’s most troubled cities. Brenner, who joined a Camden medical practice in 1998, studied patterns of how patients used city hospitals. He discovered a disproportionate number of patients came from two city bocks His data was stunning: between 2002 and 2008, some 900 people in the two buildings in those blocks had 4,000 hospital visits that cost about $200 million. The most expensive patient cost insurers $3.5 million. Brenner met and got to know the most medically complex patients, witnessed their lives and some of the economic and social conditions that contribute to bodily disregard and ruined health. And he figured out things he could do to help. He adopted lessons from people who run "medical home” programs in Seattle, San Francisco and Pennsylvania. Brenner’s Camden Coalition and its team, which includes physicians, nurses, social workers, data specialists and volunteers, builds relationships with patients in phone calls and home visits that help people manage their medical problems and focus on prevention and healthier life styles. When the coalition measured their impact on the first 36 medically complex patients identified as "super users,” their emergency room visits had dropped 40 percent, and their hospital bills were down 56 percent.

In each of the webinars, Dr. Brenner will spend the first half hour giving an overview of the program. The second half hour will open to members of the public and devoted to their questions and comments.
