Spotlight on Innovation

December 10, 2018 By: Bob Atlas
Maryland’s hospitals work every day to coordinate care across service domains, to build efficiencies, to raise up quality and patient safety, to eliminate health disparities in your communities, and much more.
 
As was clearly demonstrated at last week’s Population Health Summit: Innovation Under the Maryland Model , hosted by the Maryland Department of Health, hospitals already are thinking outside of the box – and their four walls – to provide the best possible care.
 
As the state’s advocate for improving health care and the health of all Marylanders, your Maryland Hospital Association set out to provide a resource to both celebrate these innovations in health care and learn from them.
 
The Innovations for Better Health website launched the same day as the summit. Already it features case studies showing how many of the state’s health care providers and community organizations are working together to improve care delivery.
 
Our goal is to shine a light on the novel ideas our hospitals are pursuing and expand the impact of those accomplishments by sharing them with other health care leaders. This is vital as we enter into the Total Cost of Care Model.
 
We want to encourage you to share details about your own innovative programs and practices that have demonstrated outcomes. To learn more or submit your own case study, click here.
