Camden Coalition has health care advice for Murphy

The Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers lauded the incoming gubernatorial administration’s efforts to bring more people to the table during the transition period.

“For the first time in its 15-year history, the Camden Coalition took a seat at the table on the governor-elect’s transition team,” the organization said in a statement.

Senior Director for External Affairs Natassia Rozario and Associate Director for Policy & Engagement Shabnam Salih were on two different committees.

As part of the coalition’s efforts, it, like other groups, has advice to help improve health care in the state.

Through the Good Care Collaborative, the organization has the following recommendations:

  1. Advance a community-based, data-driven model to improve population health.
  2. Support community-based care management services for individuals facing health and social challenges.
  3. Develop a coordinated statewide approach to providing sustainable, low barrier, supportive housing for homeless individuals experiencing high utilization of the health care system.
  4. Fully implement and actively engage with the Integrated Population Health Data Project, an integrated data project being operationalized by the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy.
  5. Improve oversight and the quality of non-emergency medical transportation, a required Medicaid service that provides transportation to health care appointments for beneficiaries.
  6. Improve public oversight of our Medicaid system to ensure quality for vulnerable Medicaid patients and efficiency and accountability for our state’s taxpayers.
