Government Health IT writes: The National Quality Forum has published a standard set of clinical data elements to measure quality performance that electronic health records should be able to capture across all care settings.

By providing a common language to describe the information within quality measures, the Quality Data Set enables quality measurement from a variety of electronic sources, including electronic health records, personal health records, registries and health information exchanges.

The data set framework consists of standard elements or a code list for a specific condition such as diabetes; quality data elements or information describing the context of use such as a past history of diabetes; and data flow attributes or the care setting providing the information.
