Good Care Collaborative

A statewide initiative to discuss good care in Medicaid

Launched in 2014, the Good Care Collaborative (GCC) is a coalition of providers and advocates from across New Jersey’s healthcare spectrum committed to sensible Medicaid reform and informed by models of good care. The GCC is convened by the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers.

The GCC membership represents a diverse set of stakeholders in the healthcare system, including large hospital systems, patients and advocates, primary care and behavioral health providers, and faith-based communities. By working together, the GCC believes that New Jersey’s Medicaid system can become the national model for delivering better care at lower costs to everyone, every day.

The GCC’s work is informed by a vision for a system grounded in good care. The GCC defines good care to be high-quality, high-touch, patient-centered healthcare that contains costs through effective coordination and holistic services delivered in the most appropriate settings. A system delivering good care ensures that all patients are able to enjoy their highest attainable standard of health and wellbeing.

Formed in 2014, the GCC has attracted thought leaders, patients and advocates from across the state and country. The GCC has an ambitious statewide policy agenda in the following areas:

  • Integrated behavioral and physical health
  • Housing
  • Integrated data
  • Medicaid oversight and transportation
  • Community-based care coordination.
