Coalition leadership expands to tackle complex problems locally and nationally

November 7, 2016

As the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs begins to take shape, the Camden Coalition has expanded our executive leadership team in order to give ample attention to the complex problems we are solving in both our local and national work.

Mark Humowiecki, General Counsel of the Coalition, has shifted in role from Director of Legal and External Affairs to Senior Director for National Initiatives, where he will be coordinating National Center activities. We have also brought on National Center “faculty” to support development of an online curriculum that will disseminate models for complex care. Shelly Virva, formerly of Spectrum Health in Michigan, and Lauran Hardin, formerly of Trinity Health Systems, will bring expertise in pain and addiction, trauma-informed care, and cross-continuum case modeling to our new online learning platform.

The Coalition’s leadership team is also welcoming Victor Murray, formerly Senior Program Manager for Innovation Operations on our Care Management Initiatives team, to his new role as Director of Care Management Initiatives. Kelly Craig, formerly Senior Director of Population Health Initiatives, is shifting to head our Strategy and Information department as Chief Strategy and Information Officer.

These additions to our leadership team reflect our ongoing commitment to strategy and policy that are informed by the experiences of our patients and frontline staff. As we expand into the national arena, we are staying grounded in our core activities of care management and clinical redesign here in Camden, NJ. Join us as we take our next steps toward defining the field of complex care: register for Putting Care at the Center, the inaugural conference of the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs.

Kelly Craig: Chief Strategy & Information Officer

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 lead to the Coalition's current Medicaid Accountable Care work. Additionally, she grew the Camden citywide Care Management Meetings that bring together stakeholders from three competing hospitals around common community barriers and shared patients. The structure she built over five years still meets monthly and serves as an anchor of collaboration within the Camden community.

Prior to coming to the Coalition, Kelly worked at Prevention Point Philadelphia, a harm reduction organization. There she coordinated the Street-side Health Project, a mobile medical clinic run solely on volunteer labor in partnership with local medical, nursing and pharmacy schools. Her passion drove her to establish the first low-threshold buprenorphine clinic in the area, giving access to individuals experiencing homelessness and opiod addiction. These programs are still thriving in Philadelphia. Currently, Kelly is focused on supporting the design, development, and expansion of a variety of population health initiatives taking place at the Coalition. Some current initiatives include overseeing our citywide 7-day pledge campaign, which focuses on getting patients into primary care within 7 days of a hospital visit. She is also working with community partners to advance the first regional Housing First program, a low-threshold model that provides housing and supportive services to the most medically fragile patients within Camden.
