The Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC) has approved Discern as a vendor for its new Multi-Functional, Multi-Award Technical Assistance Program. This action will allow Discern to bid on projects that will advance Maryland’s efforts to transform health care delivery.
The HSCRC approved Discern as a vendor for two key functional areas. The first is Policy Design, Analysis, and Implementation. This topic includes convening experts/stakeholders to inform policy, researching and developing policy options, and implementing payment models or programs. The second functional area is Program Monitoring and Evaluation, including evaluating HSCRC and hospital initiatives.
