KELLY CRAIG, CHIEF STRATEGY & INFORMATION OFFICER OF CAMDEN COALITION
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.
Camden Coalition is a recognized emblem of quality care model innovation, having been spotlighted in the New Yorker FRONTLINE, PBS, and NPR News.

PANEL I: Resolving Common Barriers To Physician Adoption In Digital Health
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.
PANEL II: The Implications Of Social Media On Population Health, Medical Research & Innovation
In the near future, providers will consult social media to determine whether patients are adhering to care plans, understand how drugs are performing outside of clinical environments, more accurately diagnose patients, and deliver personalized care. What type of social media platforms are healthcare organizations currently utilizing? How do HIPAA and other regulations impact healthcare organizations’ ability to utilize social media? Researchers and startup leaders at the forefront of social health innovation will discuss the needs, challenges and opportunities facing this segment of digital health.
