The National Quality Forum Measure Applications Partnership today published a list of 39 measures that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is considering adopting in Medicare public reporting and payment programs. The multi-stakeholder group must review most Medicare quality and performance measures before CMS rulemaking. It will accept comments on the measures through Dec. 6 and review them at its workgroup meetings Dec. 10-12. A second public comment period will be available in late December through early January in advance of the MAP Coordinating Committee meeting on Jan. 22-23. The MAP’s final recommendations on the measures will be submitted to CMS by Feb. 1. AHA serves on both the MAP Hospital Workgroup and MAP Coordinating Committee.
