Changes to Maryland's All-Payer Hospital Rate Setting System Place Focus More on Outpatient Services Through Incentive Programs, According to Findings from Decision Resources Group
BURLINGTON, Mass., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that new legislation enacted in Maryland may have a significant impact on branded drugs sold in the Baltimore market. Health systems will have greater incentives to better monitor readmissions, hospital-acquired infections and population health through the revised all-payer rate setting system. The system was created decades ago, and Maryland is the only state that has it, but new rules adopted this year shift the focus to outpatient services and health outcomes. The state has also adopted separate step therapy legislation.
