Martin O'Malley's policies onHealthcare

Increase support for primary care

Primary care and supportive services are key to reducing more costly hospitalizations or visits to the emergency room. O’Malley will expand and build upon current payment models that promote widespread adoption of medical homes. These comprehensive primary care sites will feature integrated care teams, using evidence- based guidelines and involving the patient in his or her own care planning; coordination of disparate services; access to medical advice at any time in convenient formats; and linkages to non-clinical supportive services such as counseling, transportation, and benefits enrollment.
