To develop the MAP Keys, HFMA convened a task force of industry experts to examine various industry KPIs and other definition sources for completeness, validity, relevancy, and ability to support performance conclusions.

Task force members also participated in a survey to help HFMA determine which KPIs provide the most value. The task force identified and prioritized a set of top KPIs that were then vetted with the HFMA National Board of Directors and members of HFMA’s National Advisory Councils.
