Date of Publication:
Associated Project:Measure Applications Partnership
On December 1, 2013 MAP received from HHS a list of 234 measures under consideration for use in 20 federal programs, a variety of public reporting and payment-based reporting programs, covering clinician, hospital, and post-acute/long-term care settings. During the pre-rulemaking review cycle, the federal government looks to MAP, a public-private partnership, to advise on the selection of measures. Over the course of the review process, MAP promotes alignment across HHS programs and with private sector efforts, incorporates measure use and performance information into MAP decision-making, and provides specific recommendations about the best use of available measures and measure gaps. MAP has now completed its third pre-rulemaking cycle, culminating in the MAP Pre-Rulemaking Report: 2014 Recommendations on Measures for More than 20 Federal Programs.
