Health Care Transformation


The Health Care Transformation Group co-administers the Round Two State Innovation Model (SIM) grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). Maryland is developing a strategy to develop population health sustainability through Maryland’s Population Health Plan, population health measurement and care plan exchange planning. Maryland is also developing a Primary Care Model to integrate care management into primary care and specialty provider healthcare practices.

Maryland aims to support a care delivery system that will improve health outcomes, enhance quality of care, address high costs and promote better coordination - between primary care practices, specialties, social support services, payment structures and technology systems. The Primary Care Model is stakeholder-driven and aligned with Maryland’s ground-breaking All-Payer Model and Medicaid and Medicare Dual Eligibles care delivery strategy. All three models contribute to the improvement of the health status of all Marylanders.


What does the program do?

  • Design models for sustaining population health in Maryland.
  • Develop data measurements for assessing population health.
  • Study care plan exchanges to address gaps in Health Information Exchange.
  • Develop models to improve patient’s experience in the physician’s office and ensure continuity of care.
  • Identify opportunities for mechanisms to fund population health sustainability.
  • Foster public-private partnerships to improve population health among providers, health systems, local health departments, and community based organizations.
  • Develop health care strategies in coordination with federal and state partners.
