The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) reviewed measures under consideration for eight hospital and setting-specific programs. 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 the potential impact of a measure on the program measure set and on health and healthcare. Through the discussion of the individual measures across the eight programs, MAP identified several overarching issues. These overarching issues include: (1) measurement to improve quality across the patient-focused episode of care, (2) engaging the patients and their families as partners in care delivery, and (3) driving improvement for all. These themes are explored in more detail in the report.
