What is Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF)?

Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF) is a standards-based representation of quality measures as electronic documents. It is developed by Health Level Seven International (HL7) an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards development organization. HQMF defines the information necessary to compute a quality measure and result value.

Where do I find HQMF standards?

The current HQMF normative version (R1) was published in July 2017 and is available for download. This version provides a simplified structure and clearer execution model over previous HQMF releases. ANSI has approved this version as a normative standard.
