The National Quality Forum (NQF) Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) convened a MAP Coordinating Committee on behalf of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide input on the measures under consideration (MUC).
In partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Quality Forum (NQF) convened a MAP Coordinating Committee to provide input on the measures under consideration (MUCs) to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Coordinating Committee advises on the coordination of performance measure strategies across public sector programs, across settings of care, and across public and private payers.
About the Project
The Coordinating Committee:
- Sets the strategic direct for MAP; and
- Gives direction to and ensures alignment among the MAP setting-specific workgroups and advisory groups.
- Clinician Workgroup
- Hospital Workgroup
- Post-Acute Care Long-Term Care Workgroup
- Rural Health Advisory Group
- Health Equity Advisory Group
The MAP Coordinating Committee serves as a governing body and makes all final recommendations regarding the inclusion of measures in federal programs. The three setting-specific Workgroups and the two Advisory Groups provide input to the MAP Coordinating Committee designed to offer in-depth analyses of the measures proposed for program use. The Coordinating Committee approves all MAP recommendations and has the authority to reverse a Workgroup decision.
This project is funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
