QDM Datatype and Definition (QDM Version 5.4)

"Medication, Administered"

Data elements that meet criteria using this datatype should document that the medication indicated by the QDM category and its corresponding value set was actually administered to the patient.

Timing: The Relevant Period addresses:

  • startTime - when a single medication administration event starts (e.g., the initiation of an intravenous infusion, or administering a pill or IM injection to a patient),
  • stopTime - when a single medication administration event ends (e.g., the end time of the intravenous infusion, or the administration of a pill or IM injection is completed - for pills and IM injections, the start and stop times are the same)

NOTE – Measure developers should address multiple administrations over a period of time using CQL logic.
