MAP Award

The industry recognition of revenue cycle excellence, 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.

The 2024 MAP Award application is now open! 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 during HFMA’s Annual Conference, and at the upcoming Revenue Cycle Conference of the following year, they are 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 2024 MAP Award application is now open and the deadline to apply for part 1 has been extended to April 15, 2024. For more information, review the MAP Award FAQs.
