If the old saying of how to get to Carnegie Hall is “practice, practice, practice,” then how you might get a measure added to a federal health program could be “MUC, MUC, MUC.” The Measures Under Consideration (MUC) is a vetted list based on measurement priorities and is put before stakeholders and the measurement community to review prior to submitting via normal rulemaking.
Here are a couple deadlines for those looking to shape or improve the healthcare landscape.
- Submissions for the 2021 MUC list are due in the online MERIT system by May 27, 2021 by 8 PM EDT.
- The Measures Application Partnership (MAP), managed by the National Quality Forum, is calling for nominations for 2021-2022 MAP. The MAP convenes stakeholders and reviews the measures under consideration for the nearly 20 federal health programs. The nomination deadline is May 6, 2021 by 6 PM EDT.
