Project Overview

The Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) project is developing a standard for communicating health care quality measurement information. The standard will conform to the requirements of the Health Level Seven (HL7) Clinical Document Architecture Release 2.0 (CDA).

The project began in 2007 with a private collaboration supported by the Alliance for Pediatric Quality (Alliance) – a joint effort of the American Academy of Pediatrics, The American Board of Pediatrics, Child Health Corporation of America, and the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions. The report on that Phase I effort can be found here: QRDA Phase 1 Report

The Phase II effort was an HL7 project supported by the Child Health Corporation of America (CHCA) and co-sponsored by the Structured Documents and Child Health Work Groups. The Phase II effort produced the QRDA Category I Draft Standard for Trial Use (DSTU), published in April 2009. QRDA Category II and III report formats were balloted for comment only. The QRDA DSTU can be found here: HL7 Implementation Guide for CDA Release 2: Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA), Release 1

The Phase III effort was recently launched in January 2012. This phase of the project, supported by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), will update and ballot the QRDA Category I DSTU, and include a U.S. Realm Quality Data Model (QDM)-based QRDA Category I Implementation Guide to direct implementers on how to construct QRDA Category I instances in conformance with HITECH eMeasures.
