Date of Publication:
Associated Project:MAP Dual Eligible Beneficiaries Workgroup
This 2014 Final Report from the Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) presents multistakeholder recommendations for quality measurement in the Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible beneficiary population. Measuring and improving the quality of care and services offers an opportunity to address the needs of these beneficiaries, their families, and their caregivers who often experience complex health and social circumstances. This report builds on prior work by updating the Family of Measures for Dual Eligible Beneficiaries and identifying persistent measure gaps. MAP also provides recommendations for the continued exploration of performance measurement of health-related quality of life for this and other vulnerable populations. Looking to the future, MAP describes an initial approach to gathering stakeholder experience in applying performance measures in Medicare and Medicaid programs.
