Quality Improvement

Maryland Physicians Care has a Quality Management (QM) Program. The QM Program monitors and assesses the health care services delivered to our members. The goal is to deliver high-quality care and services to all members.
Every year Maryland Physicians Care measures our progress against goals. We measure all parts of the QM Program. That includes clinical and service activities like:

  • Promoting health care safety with member and provider education.
  • Establishing preventive health and clinical practice guidelines. These help members understand what kind of services they need and how often they’re needed.
  • Making sure members have access to qualified health care professionals.
  • Ensuring members are receiving appropriate preventive care. Examples of preventive care are:
    • Annual flu shots
    • Child immunizations (shots)
    • Eye tests
    • Cholesterol tests
    • Breast Cancer Screenings
    • Care for women before and after the baby is born
  • Evaluating member quality of care concerns and taking action as needed.
  • Conducting surveys to see if members are satisfied with the services they are receiving from their doctors.
