MAP Clinician Workgroup
The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) Clinician Workgroup reviewed measures under consideration for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Medicare Shared Saving Program (MSSP). MAP recognized the importance of incorporating cost measures into value-based payment programs such as MIPS. MAP was also encouraged to see additional composite measures under consideration for use in the programs. Finally, MAP discussed potential criteria for measure removal from federal programs. MAP supported measure removal criteria that CMS suggested. MAP put forward related considerations regarding unintended consequences, provider burden and operational issues, appropriate risk adjustment, and consumer value.
