Delaware Health Resources Management Plan

The Delaware Health Resources Board (DHRB) pursuant to Title 16 Chapter 93 of the Delaware Code proposes to revise its Health Resources Management Plan (HRMP) regulation 16 Del.C. §9303(d)(1). The purpose of the plan is to establish the core set of common review considerations for use in reviewing Certificate of Public Review (CPR) applications. The proposed amendment seeks to clarify detail and fully update the edition of the HRMP to promote alignment with Delaware's existing statewide policy aimed at improving health outcomes, health care quality and patient experience, lowering growth in per capital health care costs and enhancing provider satisfaction. As per recommendations of Joint Sunset Committee in 2012, this is the first full document revision of the HRMP.

The board will hold a public hearing on the proposed HRMP amendment on December 5, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. at Delaware Technical Community College Terry Campus, Corporate Training Center, Rooms 400 A and B, 100 Campus Drive, Dover DE. Written comments should be sent to Latoya Wright, Staff to the DHRB at Delaware Health Care Commission, 410 Federal Street, Suite 7, Margaret O'Neill Building, Third Floor, Dover, DE 19901. Written comments will be accepted until January 5, 2017.
