CCA President and CEO Chris Palmieri responded to study results on healthcare hotspotting 

“We have long recognized that care coordination alone would not suffice to change the course of the care journey for individuals managing complex social and behavioral health challenges. If a patient is worried about where their next meal will come from, or whether they will be evicted, they are unlikely to adhere to their medication schedule, or attend a follow-up medical appointment,” CCA President and CEO Chris Palmieri said in an op-ed for Managed Healthcare Executive in response to a study conducted by J-PAL North America and the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers. The study found similar readmission rates for patients with medically and socially complex conditions in control and intervention groups, but organizations like CCA go beyond the interventions considered in the study to address social determinants of health.
