The Health Level Seven International® (HL7) QUICK data model in the Quality Improvement (QI)-Core Implementation Guide Standard for Trial Use (STU) 4 provides a view of clinical data from the perspective of representing quality measurement and decision support knowledge.

The QUICK data model uses the QI-Core profiles to provide a physical representation for the data that enables knowledge authors to ignore certain details of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR) interchange representation.

  • The QUICK model maps the FHIR® base types to Clinical Quality Language (CQL) primitives rather than using the FHIR types directly.
  • The QUICK model represents FHIR extensions as first-class attributes of the class.
