QDM Datatype and Definition (QDM Version 5.5 Guidance Update)


Data elements that meet criteria using this datatype should document the symptom and its corresponding value set.


  • The prevalencePeriod references the time from the onset date to the abatement date.
  • The onset dateTime corresponds to the implicit start dateTime of the datatype and the abatement dateTime corresponds to the implicit stop dateTime of the datatype. If the abatement dateTime is null, then the symptom is considered to still be active. When this datatype is used with timing relationships, the criterion is looking for whether the symptom was active for the time frame indicated by the timing relationships.
QDM Attributes
