CMS specialty measure sets may be reported as an alternative to reporting 6 separate quality measures. If a measure set has less than 6 measures, eligible groups and clinicians must report all measures in the set. However, if a set has more than 6 measures, participants may choose the 6 measures that best fit their practice. Remember, at least one outcome measure must be reported, regardless of whether or not an outcome measure is included in a measure set.
