MAP’s Pre-Rulemaking Report Available for Comment
Comments are due Jan. 27

The Measure Application Partnership (MAP) has released its draft pre-rulemaking recommendations on performance measures under consideration for federal quality reporting and payment programs. MAP reviewed 234 measures submitted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for 20 federal programs that reimburse providers, including clinicians, hospitals and post-acute care facilities. The attached draft report includes tables that summarize MAP’s recommendations for each federal program. CHA participated in the MAP process and will prepare formal written comments reflecting member discussions held in December and submit the comments by Jan. 27. The comment period is open to the public, but comments can only be submitted by registered users of the National Quality Forum’s (NQF) website. As required by the Affordable Care Act, MAP must release its final report to HHS by Feb. 1.
