Maryland's All-Payer Hospital System Modernization

Data and Infrastructure Workgroup

In general, this workgroup will develop recommendations to the HSCRC on the data and infrastructure requirements needed to support oversight and monitoring of the new hospital All-Payer Model and successful performance. Recommendations should take into consideration the needs of the HSCRC, as well as the needs for the health care industry and other stakeholders to achieve the goals of the model. This workgroup should work in careful collaboration with other state agencies and other stakeholders to build upon the available resources and existing models for data governance. The Workgroup will address topics that include:

  1. Data Requirements
  2. Care Coordination Data and Infrastructure
  3. Technical and Staff Infrastructure
  4. Data Sharing Strategy
