  • Supporting analytics needs for evaluating hospital performance and progress under the All Payer Model.
  • Assisting in the review and evaluation of Commission initiated or hospital submitted rate reviews.
  • Assisting in the review of Comfort Order requests made by hospitals in regard to capital funding requests.
  • Assisting in the review of Certificate of Need (CON) requests submitted by hospitals to the Maryland Health Care Commission.
