Kelly Craig, Chief Strategy & Information Officer of Camden Coalition

Camden Coalition is a recognized emblem of quality care model innovation, having been spotlighted in the New Yorker FRONTLINE, PBS, and NPR News. As one of the original ten members of the Camden Coalition, Kelly worked closely with Executive Director, Jeffrey Brenner, M.D., in developing the Coalition’s innovative care management model. This model engages patients with multiple co-morbidities that lead to high utilization of the local healthcare system. Kelly implemented the first managed care contract that led to the Coalition’s current Medicaid Accountable Care work.

She will share learned best practices for addressing health disparities and developing successful population health management models and provide an inside look at the Camden Coalition’s novel methods for leveraging public sector data, forging community partnerships with competing hospitals, and using ‘hotspotting’ data to identify and target interventions.

Chief Strategy & Information Officer of the Camden Coalition (CC), Kelly Craig will discuss her hands-on leadership role in: Achieving buy-in from local competing hospitals; Encouraging participation from high-utilizer patient populations; Developing a data infrastructure that enables Camden Coalition to to inform strategic hotspotting with real-time data analytics.


Resolving Common Barriers To Physician Adoption Of Digital Health Tools

To date, little analysis exists examining doctors’ perceptions of how digital health tools impact patient care and on the ways in which system processes can be reformed to improve utilization. In this roundtable, hospital and healthcare technology startup leaders will discuss common physician adoption challenges and perceptions of digital technology as counterproductive. Panelists will share lessons learned with each technology implementation, as well as replicable techniques for achieving physician adoption rates.


Lyle Ungar, Principal Investigator of World Wellness Project – Understanding Health Behaviors using Social Media Language

The language people use on social media provides a rich, if imperfect portal into who they are, revealing psychological traits and drivers of mental and physical well-being. Dr. Ungar will provide rich insight into how data models built on tens of millions of Facebook posts are being used to diagnose and understand depression, and how the language from billions of Tweets are being compared to county level health data in order to determine psychological causes of heart disease.

Dr. Lyle Ungar is a professor of Computer and Information Science and Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania who has analyzed 148 million tweets from more than 1,300 counties representing 88 percent of the U.S. population. His published research has been focused around the area of text mining. He has published over 200 articles and is co-inventor on eleven patents. His current research focuses on developing scalable machine learning methods for data mining and text mining, including spectral methods for NLP, and analysis of social media to better understand what determines physical and mental well-being.


The Role Of Social Media In Patient-Centered Care & Preventive Medicine

The potential value of social media for healthcare is just beginning to be realized. Novel social media applications are being developed that disease management, forecast disease outbreaks, and address social and environmental determinants of health. What can healthcare organizations learn from patient’s behaviors on social media? How can social media be leveraged in support of healthy communities and value-based care models?
