State Designated Management Service Organizations 

State Designated management management service organizations (MSOs) provide technical assistance to health care providers in their adoption and use of health information technology (health IT), including implementing electronic health records (EHRs), achieving meaningful use, reporting for quality initiatives, redesigning workflows, engaging in practice transformation, and facilitating patient engagement with health IT. State Designation requires MSOs to demonstrate they have met specific criteria to maintain high quality business operations and sound privacy and security policies

On May 19, 2009, Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law House Bill 706,Electronic Health Records - Regulation and Reimbursement. This law required the Maryland Health Care Commission (MHCC) to designate one or more MSOs to offer EHRs throughout the State by October 2012.
