In partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Quality Forum (NQF) convened a MAP Hospital Workgroup to provide input on the measures under consideration (MUCs) to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with a lens for selection and coordination of measures for hospitals, including inpatient acute, outpatient, cancer, and psychiatric hospitals.
About the Project
In this project, the MAP Hospital Workgroup, with oversight from the MAP Coordinating Committee, will provide recommendations on issues related to measures that would impact hospitals, including inpatient acute, outpatient, cancer, and psychiatric hospitals.
