AAPM&R Appointed to NQF MAP Workgroup

Jun 13, 2017

AAPM&R has been selected for appointment on the National Quality Forum (NQF) Post-Acute Care – Long Term Care Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) Workgroup. MAP is a multi-stakeholder partnership that guides the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the selection of performance measures for federal health programs. Congress recognized in 2010 the benefit of an approach that encourages consensus building among diverse private- and public-sector stakeholders. Importantly, it provides a coordinated look across federal programs at performance measures being considered.

NQF is seeking comments and feedback on all MAP appointments. If you would like to send a comment in support of AAPM&R, you may do so by emailing measureapplications@qualityforum.org by June 21, 2017.
