What are MAP Keys?
HFMA’s MAP Keys are key performance indicators that set the standards for revenue cycle excellence in the healthcare industry. Developed by industry leaders led by HFMA, these objective industry-standard metrics define the essentials of revenue cycle performance in clear, consistent, and unbiased terms.
Why are they important?
MAP Keys allow you to track revenue cycle performance against your goals and compare performance to peer groups and to the industry as a whole.
MAP Keys eliminate the confusion of varying metrics and dubious comparisons and ensure consistent revenue cycle reporting across institutions and peer groups. Using MAP Keys, healthcare finance professionals can improve business intelligence, strengthen revenue cycle management, and decide—based on industry-created metrics—where to focus for improvement.
HFMA continues to produce new MAP Keys, responding to a changing industry and defining new standards for revenue cycle excellence and physician practice management.
