There are five (5) MAP 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 celebrated at HFMA’s Annual Conference and acknowledged as industry leaders called upon to share proven strategies with HFMA members and other professionals.
A Patient Financial Communications Adopter application is not required to complete Part One of the application. However, HFMA requires all hospitals, hospital systems, and IDS applicants to have either applied for or achieved PFC Adopter status by the time they submit part two of their application. Physician practices are not required to complete the PFC Adopter application at this time.
The 2023 MAP Award application season ended on 03/31/23. 2024 MAP Award applications will open in December 2023. For more information, review the MAP Award FAQs.

While your total Revenue Cycle Score is below the median of previous MAP Award applicants, we encourage you to apply for the MAP Award. Facilities who do not win the MAP Award for High Performance will be provided feedback reports containing useful metric comparison data and best practice information. This feedback has proven useful to applicants at their organizations as well as for future MAP Award applications.
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. No preference is given to current MAP App subscribers nor is MAP App subscription an eligibility requirement.

The certificate recognizes applicants who have notable superior revenue cycle performance, as evidenced by meeting industry-standard performance benchmarks, implementing a patient-centered approach to the revenue cycle, and attaining favorable levels of patient satisfaction.
