Measure Applications Partnership
The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) reviewed measures under consideration for several clinician programs. MAP’s pre-rulemaking recommendations for measures in these programs reflect the MAP Measure Selection Criteria, how well the measures address the identified program goals, and NQF’s prior work in identifying families of measures. During its review of the measures, MAP identified several overarching issues for clinician programs such as: (1) including more high-value measures in federal programs; (2) a greater focus on parsimony and alignment of measures in programs to reduce burden; and (3) the need of incentives for more meaningful measurement. This report explores those issues in further detail.
