Complex Health and Social Needs Fellowship - Crozer-Keystone Health System - PA

Complex Health and Social Needs Fellowship

Formerly the Healthcare Hot-Spotting and Super-Utilizer Fellowship

As our nation and healthcare systems advance, we are challenged to create and implement innovative and sustainable approaches to expanding healthcare access while providing quality care. To achieve that goal, the Crozer-Keystone Health System and the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers have established a unique fellowship to address the disproportionate use of healthcare resources, especially by those patients who suffer from chronic and complex medical conditions.

In Camden, New Jersey, Dr. Jeffrey Brenner and the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers have used community-based, intensive care coordination to achieve great clinical advances for patients who frequently utilize area emergency rooms and hospitals. This yearlong fellowship seeks to train Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners to become clinical champions for the development of strategies and the implementation of systems to reduce over-utilization the efforts of integrated, inter-professional teams at the Camden Coalition and Crozer-Keystone.

About the Program

In this video produced by the American Psychological Association, William Warning, M.D. and Barry J. Jacobs, Psy.D. provide an overview of the Crozer-Keystone Complex Health and Social Needs Fellowship at the Center for Family Health in Springfield, PA.

Our one year fellowship brings together collaborative, integrated clinical teams including Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners, as well as social work and psychology students and pharmacy residents, to become clinical champions for the development of strategies and the implementation of systems to address the issue of frequent acute care utilization by working closely with the Camden Coalition and Crozer-Keystone. Fellows possess a keen interest in working with underserved populations and developing skills in healthcare hot-spotting, healthcare policy, a patient-centered medical home model of care and intensive care management in order to develop and contribute to a unique and sustainable approach to population health.
