What is Clinical Quality Language (CQL)?

Clinical Quality Language (CQL) is an HL7 draft standard for trial use (DSTU). It is part of the effort to harmonize standards between electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and clinical decision support (CDS). CQL provides the ability to express logic that is human readable yet structured enough for processing a query electronically.
