The National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, a new initiative of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, was created as a professional home for clinicians, healthcare leaders, social service service providers, researchers, public health officials, data scientists, policy makers, payers, consumer advocates, and others who are working in the emerging field of complex care. We are working toward better-integrated, more efficient care for the relatively small population with complex health and social needs, including necessities often considered “non-medical” such as addiction, housing, hunger, and mental health.
The National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs is funded by AARP, The Atlantic Philanthropies, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Putting Care at the Center is bringing together innovators from across the country to network, learn from each other, and create a shared agenda for the emerging field of complex care.
Attendees will learn about the science of model building, innovative funding as a lever for change, building a field to understand care, and more. The keynote address on equity in healthcare will be given by Geoffrey Canada, president of the Harlem Children’s Zone.
Attendees will also be able to participate in workshops delivered by organizations from around the country who have established models for addressing complex needs: the Southcentral Foundation, Health Leads, the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership, Hennepin Health, the National Governor’s Association, and the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers. The plenary panels will be moderated by Jackie Judd, special correspondent for PBS NewsHour.
