The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) reviewed nine measures under considerations for five setting-specific federal programs addressing post-acute care (PAC) and long-term care (LTC) and gave input on potential measure gaps. The programs that had measures under consideration are Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Quality Reporting Program (IRF QRP), Long-Term Care Hospital Quality Reporting Program (LTCH QRP), Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP), Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HH QRP), and Hospice Quality Reporting Program (Hospice QRP). MAP’s pre-rulemaking recommendations reflect the MAP Measure Selection Criteria and how well a measure under consideration addresses the identified program goals. To inform deliberations, NQF staff provided MAP with a preliminary analysis and draft recommendation on the measures under consideration (MUC). MAP also drew upon its Coordination Strategy for Post-Acute Care and Long-Term Care Performance Measurement as a guide to inform pre-rulemaking review of measures for the PAC/LTC programs. In the PAC/LTC coordination strategy, MAP defined high-leverage areas for performance measurement and identified 13 core measurement concepts to address the high-leverage areas.
