Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

On Friday, November 27, the National Quality Forum released a list of 133 Measures Under Consideration (MUC) for future rule-making in 2016, 12 of which are specific to the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) setting.  This is a critical step in the CMS annual process which requires review and voting by the NQF Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) to arrive at a set of measures recommended for use in federal pay for performance and public reporting programs. Please see attached for full information. Comments are due to the NQF by Monday, December 7, 2015.  NYSHFA has been working with AHCA on discharge measures and will continue to provide input for the others.
