What is the Quality Data Model (QDM)?

The Quality Data Model (QDM) is an information model that defines relationships between patients and clinical concepts in a standardized format to enable electronic quality performance measurement. The model is the current structure for electronically representing quality measure concepts for stakeholders involved in electronic quality measurement development and reporting. The QDM is currently being aligned with other relevant clinical decision support (CDS) standards.
