2013 MacArthur Fellow Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, MD is a family physician working to bend the health care cost curve the right way through patient engagement. Recognizing the need for a new way for hospitals, providers and community residents to collaborate on health, Dr. Brenner founded the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, working to build an integrated health delivery model to provide better care for Camden, New Jersey residents. As the Coalition's Executive Director, Dr. Brenner spends much of his time meeting with stakeholders and policymakers, advocating for the models of care the Coalition has developed and demonstrated through data centric results. His goal is to ensure that families who live in urban, underserved communities receive high-quality, culturally competent, personalized family health care. Fixing health care is not a technical problem -- it is a moral, ethical and political problem. "Go out and meet the most expensive people in the city and build health care around extreme patients," while lowering costs at the same time.
The 2011 TEDxPhilly conference examined vast interpretations of the theme "The City" on Tuesday, November 8. TEDxPhilly brought together engaging speakers, performers, participants and exhibitors to deconstruct, decipher and explore some of the greatest challenges, innovations, concepts and realities that shape and are shaped by cities and their inhabitants. Philadelphia was the point of departure, but the conversation traveled beyond its borders. The event took place at Temple Performing Arts Center in North Philadelphia.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
