Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) Recommendations Submitted to CMS

June 13, 2012


The National Quality Forum (NQF) convened Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) has submitted recommendations to CMS through a series of reports. These reports provide guidance to CMS on three key areas: care provided to Medicare/Medicaid dual eligible patients, cancer hospitals which are exempt from Medicare prospective payment system, and hospice and palliative care. These reports address the care provided to some of the sickest and most vulnerable individuals in the country while addressing measurement gaps in these areas.
