Feasibility criterion

The Feasibility criterion is the extent to which the specifications, including measure logic, require data that are readily available or that could be captured without undue burden and can be implemented for performance measurement. National Quality Forum. (2019). Measure Evaluation Criteria and Guidance for Evaluating Measures for Endorsement.

FHIR profile

A Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) profile is a set of requirements and constraints that are placed on a resource. It can describe general features that the system supports for that resource or information that is handled or produced according to a specific use case. Often, they include rules about which API features, terminologies, or resource elements are or are not used.

Future state

Future state is a model that integrates the downstream work of informatics, implementation, communication, and evaluation into the guideline or measure development process.
