DEQM

The Data Exchange for Quality Measures Implementation Guide (IG), or DEQM, provides a framework that defines conformance profiles and guidance to enable the exchange of quality information and quality measure reporting (e.g., for transferring quality information from a health care provider to a payer). The DEQM expects to use quality measures specified in accordance with the Quality Measure IG and Quality Improvement Core Framework (QI-Core).

As of April 2020, the published version of Da Vinci DEQM v1.0.0 is based on the Fast Healthcare Interoperablity Resources® (FHIR) R3 (Standard for Trial Use 3) and is available on the Health Level Seven International® website. Ongoing development will harmonize to FHIR® R4 with the Quality Measure IG and QI-Core Framework.
