For the 2015-2016 pre-rulemaking cycle, MAP received from HHS a list of 141 measures under consideration for use in 16 federal 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 fifth pre-rulemaking cycle, culminating in these recommendations. This is the first of three deliverables, and MAP will later release strategic guidance on measurement in different federal health programs, as well as analysis on issues that cut across federal programs or public and private programs.
