Care Transformation Organization

GBMC is committed to advancing primary care so that you receive the best possible care. The State and Federal government have launched a program — the Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) — to help more primary care physicians get closer to advanced primary care. The program offers primary care practices additional funding for care management and access to an interdisciplinary care management team—through an entity called a Care Transformation Organization (CTO). GBMC is a champion of advanced primary care, and through Greater Baltimore Health Alliance (GBHA), has been approved to serve as a CTO.

As a CTO, GBHA is committed to supporting practices that are eager to deliver high quality patient care. If you are a primary care practice interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact the administrative and management team at: gbhaquestions@gbmc.org.
