INTRODUCTION

“Fixed” grading limits use either a constant concentration (type C limits) or a constant percentage of the target value (type P limits) to define a range of acceptable performance above and below the target value.


The target value for qualitative or semi-quantitative results is the most frequently reported (consensus) value(s) of all valid results.


The target value for quantitative results is the mean of all results after removal of outliers. In contrast to fixed limits, limits based on standard deviations (SDs) can lead to different grading ranges for the same analyte, even when different peer groups have the same means.


The limits required by CMS consist of all three types discussed above; fixed concentration (type C), fixed percentage (type P), and 3SD (type S):



All three types of CMS grading limits are used.  Not all analytes listed have CMS limits.


Proficiency testing is not required by CMS or other agencies for analytes/procedures which have no CMS-mandated grading limits. Such analytes/procedures are identified in the Analytes Index as well as on the reporting forms.


Results for these CMS-unscored analytes are not included in computing participants’ overall CMS subspecialty scores. Therefore these scores do not appear on CMS Cumulative Summary reports; they appear only on graded reports (which do not go to CMS).


In the interest of uniformity, the limits used for CMS-unscored analytes are derived from those used for CMS-scored analytes which are similar.


A listing of the limits used for all analytes/procedures, both CMS-scored (regulated analytes) and CMS-unscored, follows.
