Murphy Transition Teams Elevate Complex Care

Last November Governor Phil Murphy and Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver assembled 14 Gubernatorial Transition Teams tasked with identifying the policy priorities and opportunities for the new administration. The final reports, released by Governor’s Office on January 26, set a powerful foundation for the new Governor’s next steps.

We are thrilled to see GCC policy recommendations reflected in both the Healthcare and the Housing Transition Reports and a commitment to complex care initiatives and health equity.

GCC recommendations included:

  • Develop next-generation Medicaid Accountable Care Organizations
  • Accelerate the implementation of the Integrated Population Health Data (iPHD) Project with an emphasis on the social determinants of health
  • End homelessness in NJ by setting a progressive Housing First policy

Complex care recommendations included:

  • Establish an Office of Health Transformation
  • Introduce a comprehensive plan to improve maternal health and birth outcomes
  • Develop a pilot to provide legal representation for low-income NJ residents facing eviction or foreclosure
  • Endorse legislation to allow counties to increase Homeless Trust Funds
