Advanced Health Collaborative

The other day it was announced that WMHS, through the Trivergent Health Alliance, became a member of the Advanced Health Collaborative consisting of four other Maryland health systems, LifeBridge in Baltimore, Adventist in suburban DC, Mercy also in Baltimore and Peninsula Regional in Salisbury.  

WMHS was the founding member of the Total Patient Revenue Collaborative almost four years ago and will remain actively engaged with that Collaborative.  However, it was felt that being a member of this new learning collaborative, Advanced Health, would be especially beneficial to our Trivergent alliance partner Frederick Memorial since its membership is primarily Global Budget Revenue hospitals.  Both WMHS and Meritus are TPR hospitals, but we felt that we too could benefit from the work of this new collaborative.  

Hospitals in Maryland continue to face many challenges as we continue the transition to value-based care delivery; and although WMHS has been at the forefront of this new care delivery model for over four years, there is always more that we can learn and benefit from.
