Maryland Promotes Patient Centered Medical Home Pilot

Maryland Health Care Commission News Release: Legislation creating a three-year Patient Centered Medical Home Pilot program passed the General Assembly earlier this year and was championed by Lieutenant Governor Anthony G. Brown. The legislation grew out of the Maryland Health Quality and Cost Council, established by Governor Martin O’Malley and chaired by Lt. Governor Brown and Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Secretary John M. Colmers. “Our newly established Patient Centered Medical Home program will allow Maryland to move forward with health care reform, improve the quality of care, and reduce costs by offering primary care providers responsible incentives to spend more time with patients, coordinate care, and promote prevention and wellness,” said Lt. Governor Brown. “We are incredibly grateful that Dr. Grundy has joined our efforts and is sharing his expertise with our primary care providers.”
