Hospital Population Health Initiatives Program

Hospital Population Health Initiatives Program

Friday, October 28, 2022, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Please join Maryland Philanthropy Network’s Health Funders Affinity Group to learn about the community-based partnership programs Baltimore-area medical institutions are implementing to accomplish their population health goals.

Pursuant to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), hospital facilities must perform a community health needs assessment every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified.  Our speakers will describe their initiatives and the partnerships developed to meet the health needs of Maryland residents including,

  • LifeBridge’s Center for Hope programs, which address violence and trauma, a huge contributing factor to poor health and early onset dementia.
  • Greater Baltimore Medical Center’s expanded Health Partners Primary Care — Jonestown location and in-home medical care for residents of zip codes 21202 and 21218 through the Gilchrist Elder Medical Care (EMC) program, funded by a recent $1.5 million grant from the MD Community Health Resources Commission.
  • MedStar’s community outreach programs that address health and wellness, access to health care, and social determinants of health like House Calls, Mobile Health Clinic in South Baltimore, and Center for Successful Aging.

All these projects contribute towards the goals set by the approved 2021 legislation, Maryland Health Equity Resource Act, which provides significant new grant funding and state resources for local communities to address health disparities, improve health outcomes, expand access to primary care and prevention services, and help reduce health care costs.  “The grants will bring much needed resources to address health disparities and improve health outcomes.”  Health Funders will be able to engage on ways they can assist with funding gaps and create connections. 

Our speakers will be:

  • Adam Conway, Senior Director of Population Health Greater Baltimore Health Alliance, Greater Baltimore Medical Center
  • Sharon L. McClernan, Vice President for Population Health, LifeBridge Health
  • Adam Rosenberg, Esq., Executive Director Center for Hope, Vice President, Violence Intervention & Prevention, LifeBridge Health
  • Lucas Carlson, MD, MPH, Regional Medical Director, Care Transformation, Assistant Professor Department of Emergency Medicine, MedStar Baltimore City
  • Kurt N. Martin, FACHE, Senior Director of Operations – Geriatrics, MedStar Health
