HL7 Tutorial: Introduction to HQMF
May 7, 2014 @ 1:45 pm - 5:00 pm
Lantana Senior Software Architect & Engineer, Kanwarpreet Sethi, will be the lead speaker of the HL7 Tutorial: Introduction to Health Quality Measures Format (HQMF)
Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) help in measuring the quality of healthcare provided to a patient. The Health Quality Measures Format (HQMF) is HL7’s specification for defining the structure and content of a CQM. It is based on the HL7 Reference Information Model (RIM), and uses that model to define all the information necessary to compute a quality measure and produce a mathematical result.
This tutorial serves as an introduction to HQMF R1 and R2 and their design, and their use in quality measurement. It primarily covers the HQMF R2 architecture, the technical specification, the role it plays in the quality measurement space, and its relationship to other quality measurement standards, including the HL7 QDM-based HQMF R2 implementation guide (a US-realm guide for HQMF).
This Tutorial Will Benefit:
New implementers, measure developers, policy makers, and standards developers
