Bridges to Care Program

Together Colorado “Bridges to Care” Fact Sheet

SUMMARY

The Bridges to Care project in Aurora, Colorado follows an initiative developed in Camden, New Jersey by Dr. Jeffrey Brenner called “Hotspotters” that focuses on getting patients and resources out of overcrowded emergency rooms and into quality primary care.  In the “hot spot” model care teams visit patients in high-need, high-cost neighborhoods to improve their access to health care and manage their chronic conditions.
