Silver Spring, MD – The Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) has awarded $7.6 Million to the Nexus Montgomery Regional Partnership—a collaborative effort among the six hospitals operating in Montgomery County and a network of community based organizations—to implement or expand initiatives that will improve the health status of those most at risk of avoidable hospital use. The target population includes Medicare seniors, the medically frail, those with severe behavioral health conditions and those without eligibility for health insurance.
Maryland is giving out $2.5 million to hospitals that have committed to working together to improve quality and lower costs. The money is intended to encourage hospitals to establish regional partnerships through which they will collaborate on programs to address widespread health problems. Awards ranging from $200,000 to $400,000 per partnership will be paid out to each partnership’s lead hospital through their rates.
