MAP PAC-LTC Programmatic Deliverable - Final Report 

Date of Publication:

Associated Project:

The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) reviewed measures under consideration for five setting-specific federal programs addressing post-acute care (PAC) and long-term care (LTC). MAP’s pre-rulemaking recommendations for measures in these programs reflect the MAP Measure Selection Criteria, how well the measures address the identified program goals, and NQF’s prior work in identifying families of measures. During its review of the measures, MAP identified several overarching issues including: (1) emphasizing harmonization of measures to promote patient-centered care across PAC/LTC programs, (2) coordinating efforts between patient assessment instruments used in PAC/LTC settings to maintain competencies and quality of data, and (3) aligning performance measurement across PAC/LTC settings as well as with other settings to ensure comparability of performance and to facilitate information exchange. This report explores those issues in further detail.
