MAY 30, 2012
By attending this webinar, participants where be able to
understand the importance of QDM in measure development. Furthermore,
participants where able to learn how QDM plays a role in defining the measure’s
grammar and help define how clinical quality measures should be written. NQF
staff and Health IT experts led a 90-minute webinar including discussion and a
Q&A session. This free virtual forum was open to the public and provided a
valuable opportunity for participants to understand the basics of the Quality
Data Model and its structure. Participants walked away with an understanding
why a model is necessary and its role in creating an eMeasure. Participants also
gained insight into the current and future states of the QDM as well as
perspective on practical implementation.
