DHMH, HSCRC Seeking Proposals to Fund Partnerships for Health System Transformation; Up to $2 Million Will Aid Data Analysis, Care Coordination, Health Improvement, More PDF Print E-mail
Baltimore, MD (February 18, 2015) – The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) and Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) are seeking proposals for the development of Regional Partnerships for Health System Transformation in support of Maryland’s new all-payer model. A $400,000 award will be provided to up to five partnerships across the state to advance reforms to Maryland’s health care delivery system.
 
Under the all-payer model, Maryland’s hospitals have a strong incentive to improve population health and lower costs. This work requires increased collaboration between health systems, community hospitals, insurance companies, physician practices, long-term care and other providers, as well as community-based organizations, public health departments, and patients and consumers. In order to accelerate health system transformation to align with the all-payer model, Maryland will fund regional partnerships to collaborate on analytics, delivery-of-care coordination and services based on patient and population needs and population health-improvement approaches.
 
Awardees will be responsible for developing a regional transformation plan that will outline a concept for a delivery-and-financing model. They also will be expected to identify a sustainable funding source to finance implementation and operation of the model after the planning period. 
 
DHMH and HSCRC will host a webinar to provide more information to potential applicants. The date and time will be announced on the HSCRC website in the coming days (http://www.hscrc.state.md.us/). Applications are due April 15, and awards will be announced in early May. Funding will be allocated via HSCRC-approved rate increases for participating hospitals. The Request for Proposals, which outlines application requirements and funding priorities, is available here.
