Maryland is pioneering a new care model that is focusing our hospitals more on prevention and strengthening their relationships with other health providers in their communities. This is producing better outcomes for patients, keeping people healthier, and making it easier for consumers to navigate the health care system. We will also talk about innovative collaborations between health care institutions and faith communities and consider how to implement these models locally. This is truly unique in the nation, and Marylanders should know about the new opportunities available.

In 2015 we hosted 11 regional public forums all across the state to get the word out as widely as possible. An archive of materials from each forum is available below.
