MAP Award

Earn recognition for your outstanding achievements in pursuing  revenue cycle excellence.

MAP Award for High Performance

HFMA’s MAP Award for High Performance in Revenue Cycle recognizes organizations whose innovative and effective strategies have enabled them to achieve excellence in revenue cycle performance. There are five (5) award categories: hospitals, critical access hospitals, hospital systems, integrated delivery systems, and physician practices.

Winners excel in meeting industry standard revenue cycle benchmarks (MAP Keys), implementing the patient-centered recommendations and best practices embodied in HFMA’s Healthcare Dollars & Sense™ initiatives, and achieving outstanding patient satisfaction. Recipients are awarded a crystal trophy at HFMA's Annual Conference and acknowledged as industry leaders called upon to share proven strategies with HFMA members and other professionals. 

HFMA requires hospital and health system applicants to have either applied for or achieved Patient Financial Communications Adopter status by the time they submit their hospital or hospital system application for the MAP Award.

HFMA's Revenue Cycle Score Calculator

Benchmark Your Performance Against Past HFMA Award Winners

The Revenue Cycle Score Calculator compares your data to three years of historical MAP Award applicant data. Once metrics are populated for all MAP Keys, the calculator provides your organization’s revenue cycle score and information around how previous applicants with similar scores fared when applying for the MAP Award.

Application Information

Applications for the 2019 MAP Award are now closed. The 2020 MAP Award application will open in November. Check back in the fall for updates.

HFMA’s MAP Award winners are determined through analysis of MAP Keys, narrative information, and additional materials collected during the application process. MAP Keys are publicly available. Your organization does not need to be a MAP App subscriber to apply.
