    About the Summit

    Under Maryland’s Care Redesign Amendment to the All-Payer Model, the State is leading the nation in care delivery transformation. In the first three years of implementation, Maryland has met or exceeded the key All-Payer Model tests for limiting hospital cost growth and improving quality of care.

    The next phase of the All-Payer Model begins in January of 2019. The Maryland Total Cost of Care Model moves beyond hospital walls to improve Medicare patients’ care in the post-acute community. Care redesign encourages even greater provider alignment to reduce costs and improve quality. Hospitals, post-acute providers, physicians, and community-based providers must all work together to improve population health. Maryland’s growing senior population, with their significant needs, are at the center of this drive for improvement.

    LifeSpan and The Beacon Institute have teamed up with the Maryland Hospital Association (MHA) and the Maryland National Capital Homecare Association (MNCHA) and Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) to bring you the 2018 Cross-Continuum Leadership Summit. Designed to prepare you for what lies ahead, the fifth annual summit will inform you about the latest innovative care delivery models, and update you on technologies being used to improve outcomes.  

    As a stakeholder, you will need to be an actively engaged partner in the State’s vision for person-centered care, clinical innovation and excellence, and improved population health. The Cross-Continuum Leadership Summit will ready you for opportunities currently underway and those that lie ahead.

    Target Audience
    • Leaders at Hospitals, Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers, Assisted Living Communities, and Home Health Providers.

    • Owners, Executive Directors, Administrators, Medical Directors, Clinical Leaders, and Home Health Providers

    • Hospital Executives, CEOs, CFOs, CMOs, and CIOs/CTOs
