The Maryland Health Care Commission
the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC),
in consultation with the Department
of Health and Mental Hygiene, produced this Guide
on Maryland hospitals with the assistance of experts
in hospital care, and representatives of the hospital
industry in Maryland. Both the MHCC and the HSCRC are
public regulatory agencies.
The Maryland General Assembly has authorized
the MHCC to produce several types of performance evaluation
systems, including the development of the Nursing
Home Performance Evaluation Guide, the Assisted
Living Facility Guide and Health
Maintenance Organization (HMO) and POS Plans Guides.
