In this new report co-authored by Anne Milgram, Jeffrey Brenner, Dawn Wiest,Virginia Bersch, and Aaron Truchil, the authors discuss that when stakeholders in Camden, New Jersey integrated health care and criminal justice data, they found that a small number of Camden residents disproportionately use the health care and criminal justice sectors. Ultimately, integrated data can lead to better individual outcomes, reduced crime and system cycling, and increased efficiency by directing resources to where they will have the most impact.
