The National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs

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.
