Clinical Quality Language (CQL)

Clinical Quality Language (CQL) is an HL7 authoring language standard that's intended to be human readable. It is part of the effort to harmonize standards used for electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and clinical decision support (CDS). Participants will learn about the general architecture of CQL and how it can be used with other data models such as HL7® FHIR® and Quality Data Model (QDM). The class includes exercises and applied tutorials so attendees will gain hands-on experience both with building CQL logic and using the authoring tools available.

Target Audience
Clinical Informaticists
Clinical domain experts
Quality measurement and decision support content authors
