NQF Post-Acute/Long-Term Care Workgroup Releases Report for Public Comment

Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) is a public-private partnership convened by the National Quality Forum (an LTQA member). MAP was created for the explicit purpose of providing input to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the selection of performance measures for public reporting and performance-based payment programs. The draft Performance Measurement Coordination Strategy for Post-Acute Care and Long-Term Care report and its appendices are available for review and comment.  The report aims to enhance alignment across public and private initiatives by defining priorities and core measure concepts to harmonize measures and promote common goals across initiatives, highlighting the need for common data sources and health IT, and determining a pathway for improving measure application. All comments must be submitted by Wednesday, November 23, at 6:00 pm, ET.
