Speaker: Jeffrey Brenner, MD
Jeffrey Brenner, MD, is a family physician who has worked in Camden, NJ since 2000. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Vassar College, and graduated from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He completed his residency with Swedish Family Medicine in Seattle, WA.
Brenner owned and operated a solo-practice, urban family medicine office in Camden providing full-spectrum family health services for a Medicaid-enrolled population. Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers, and community residents to collaborate, he founded the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers in 2003, where he served as Executive Director until joining UnitedHealthcare.
Dr. Brenner’s and the Coalition’s innovative use of data to identify high-need, high-cost patients in a fragmented system and improve their care was profiled in the 2011 New Yorker article “The Hot-spotters” by writer and surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande, and on PBS Frontline. In 2013 he was honored with the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship for his work, and in 2014 he was elected to the Institute of Medicine.
Dr. Brenner leads United Healthcare’s community-based services model, myConnections, as Senior Vice President of Integrated Health and Human Services.
