In 2014, the State of Maryland and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) reached an agreement to modernize Maryland’s all-payer rate-setting system for hospital services. This initiative allowed Maryland to adopt new and innovative policies aimed at improving care, improving population health, and moderating the growth in hospital costs. Transforming Maryland’s health care system to be highly reliable, highly efficient, and a point of pride in our communities requires increased collaboration among health systems, payers, community hospitals, ambulatory physician practices, long-term care, and other providers, as well as patients and families, public health, and community-based organizations. The Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) seeks proposals for supporting the implementation of plans to improve care coordination and population health in support of Maryland’s All-Payer Model.

These competitive transformation implementation awards are intended to support and leverage a culmination of investments and activities related to partnerships, strategies, progress, and vision for care coordination and provider alignment in the State. The intent of these partnerships and strategies is to reduce potentially avoidable utilization at Maryland hospitals through better care coordination and provider alignment that results in improvement on the metrics required under the new All-Payer Model. Competitive transformation implementation awards will be available to any Maryland acute care or specialty hospital (including TPR hospitals) that submits a successful bid that can immediately provide an impact on reducing avoidable utilization and per capita costs, improving quality, and achieving a return on investment. The aggregate amount available for these awards is up to 0.25% of statewide revenue.
