Stakeholder Health, December 20, 2018
Lauran Hardin, MSN, RN-BC, CNL, FNAP, is the Senior Advisor, Partnerships and Technical Assistance, for the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs and senior director at the Camden Coalition. In this role she continues her past experience providing consulting, co-design and coaching in complex care transformation. Her special interests include the impact of trauma/loss on high frequency healthcare access and the economic potential of stabilizing complex patients through retraining/redesigning existing inter-professional resources in the healthcare system.
Hardin was previously the Director of a Complex Care Center serving hospitals, multiple providers and more than 1,500 high frequency/complex patients in the Mercy Health System. The Center’s model of complex care has resulted in better patient navigation and outcomes, including decreased emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and costs for diverse vulnerable populations. She received an Innovation Grant from Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic health care delivery systems in the nation, and implemented aspects of the care model changing the system of care for complex patients in more than twenty Trinity Health ministries across six states.
