The National Quality Forum’s Measure Applications Partnership is accepting public comment through Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. ET on 52 performance measures the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is considering for use in Medicare public reporting and payment programs. The public-private partnership provides pre-rulemaking guidance to CMS. MAP’s hospital, clinician and post-acute/long-term care workgroups and its health equity and rural health advisory groups will meet in early December to discuss the measures. MAP’s coordinating committee will then issue draft recommendations for comment and review, and final recommendations by Feb. 1.
