Measure Applications Partnership
The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP), convened and facilitated by the National Quality Forum (NQF), is a multi-stakeholder group that provides recommendations to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the selection of performance measures for federal health programs.   During the 2021-22 cycle, MAP reviewed 29 measures under consideration (XLSX), with two measures considered for two programs and one measure considered for seven programs. MAP’s pre-rulemaking recommendations for measures in these programs reflect the MAP Measure Selection Criteria (MSC) and how well the measures address the goals of the program. In addition, NQF launched the Health Equity Advisory Group, with CMS funding, to review all measures under consideration to ensure that perspectives on health inequities and disparities were adequately considered.
