  • Continued QDM to QI Core Mapping
    • (Fourth installment – QDM to QI Core Review Set 4: Encounter, Family History, Immunization, Medication, Substance – documentation on CQI Wiki under Harmonization of Health Quality Information models, updated 3 April 2018): (
      • Discussion
        • Encounter, Order: No specific order for encounter in QI Core. Fits to referral request. Rest maps well.
        • Encounter, Recommended: Maps to referral request. does not have a negation rationale attribute, but not sure its needed.
        • Encounter, Performed: Maps to Encounter in QI Core. Maps well, with only problem being encounter class, but that can be solved by making your own value set for type.
        • Family History: Maps perfectly.
        • Immunization, Administered: Maps to Immunization. No mapping for Supply, may need to be addressed with FHIR core if necessary.
        • Immunization, Order: Maps to immunization in Qi Core. Does not have a requested code in value set. Immunization route mapping might need further discussion - its the route used, not the route requested. Immunization Request is not covered correctly. Supply not addressed, not an issue.
        • Medication Active: MedicationStatement. Everything maps, other than Supply.
        • Medication Administration: Do multiple dosages count as 1 med admin with 2 supplies or 2 med administrations. No need for supply for now.
        • Medication Dispense: Maps same the others
        • Medication Discharge: maps really well to med request.
        • Medication, Order: maps really well to med request.
        • Substance, Administration: Should Map to QI Core substance. Needs discussion with Substance resource owner. There may be several mappings for this. Will have to come back to this one. Substance is used for breast milk, and formula and blood product. needs to be rethought in QDM and QI Core.
