The University of Maryland Quality Care Network (UM QCN) is looking to partner with payer organizations to engage in new value-based payment structures that enable new and better care delivery models. 

In partnership with the UM QCN, payers can have:

  • A high-quality and high-performing provider partner that is attractive to current and prospective members.
  • The ability to delegate performance risk with terms that improve certainty of financial outcomes for the health plan.
  • The ability to reduce health care cost growth rates and price premiums competitively.
  • The opportunity to partner around new health plan products that garner new membership and margin growth for the health plan.
