MAP Dual Eligible Beneficiaries Workgroup
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. In addition, MAP provided feedback on the current measure sets for these programs, as well as one additional PAC/LTC-specific program for which new measures were not considered. During its review of the measures, MAP identified several overarching themes including: (1) implementation of the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act and (2) Continued Opportunities to Address Quality. This report explores those issues in further detail.
