Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) Category 3 Project

To return to the >> Structured Documents Work Group Page

Project Overview

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

A QRDA Category III report is an aggregate quality report. Each report contains calculated summary data for one or more measures for a specified population of patients within a particular health system over a specific period of time. Data needed to generate QRDA Category II and QRDA Category III reports must be included in the collected QRDA Category I reports, as the processing entity will not have access to additional data sources.

A QRDA Category III Implementation Guide is being developed for ballot, that will direct implementers on how to construct QRDA Category III instances in conformance with HITECH eMeasures to represent the query results obtained from the distributed queries. This work effort will further align with the work taking place in HL7 to update the Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF) Implementation Guide. In addition, this project will leverage and harmonize similar activities within and outside HL7 to avoid duplication of existing efforts.
