Maryland has received $2.4 million in federal funds to help primary care physicians provide better coordinated care to patients.
The state was one of 25 that federal officials said on Thursday would receive grants.
Primary care providers will lead a team of health professionals that will work together to treat a patient.
The award will also be used to identify areas with poor health outcomes so that health departments can better target patients in need.
This new program, which state health officials hope will drive down costs, will be further designed and developed over the next six months.
