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.
The Quality Data Model (QDM) is a conceptual information model that defines principal concepts (classes) of information, their related attributes and their relationships. The model provides a standardized way to express what needs to be retrieved from electronic records to enable quality performance measurement. The QDM is the current structure for electronically representing quality measure concepts for stakeholders involved in electronic quality measurement development and reporting.
