This 2015 Final Report from the Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) presents multi-stakeholder recommendations for quality measurement in the Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible beneficiary population. These beneficiaries are some of the most vulnerable individuals accessing the healthcare system and supportive services, often experiencing disabling disease and complex social circumstances with limited resources. Quality measurement is an essential catalyst to stimulate needed healthcare improvements and more value-driven use of services for the population. MAP builds upon its previous work in this report by updating its list of the best available measures for dual eligible beneficiaries. MAP also summarizes the results of measure alignment and focused feedback efforts, and describes specialized models of care designed to meet individuals’ complex medical and social needs that promote a more person- and family-centered system.
