The eCQM Informational Tools, Resources and Collaboration (InfoTRAC) referenced in this section are openly available and are provided for stakeholder use.
They provide a foundation for the development, implementation, reporting, help, and feedback of quality measures and their improvement.
Clinical Quality Language (CQL) is an HL7 standard for trial use (STU) and it is part of the effort to harmonize standards between electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and clinical decision support (CDS). CQL provides the ability to express logic that is human readable yet structured enough for processing a query electronically.
This Implementation Guide (IG) defines an approach to using the Clinical Quality Language (CQL) with the Quality Data Model (QDM) and Health Quality Measures Format (HQMF) to define electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs). The IG describes the use of CQL to express the logic and the US Domain conceptual data model, QDM to express the individual data types and their attributes for an eCQM detailed using the HQMF standard.
