This page is part of the Documentation Templates and Rules (v1.0.0: STU 1) based on FHIR R4. This is the current published version. For a full list of available versions, see the Directory of published versions


DTR Questionnaire

The Questionnaire resource is used to represent the information needs that a payer has to satisfy for their documentation requirements and/or rules. This IG uses the CQF-Questionnaire Profile from the FHIR Clinical Reasoning Module. This profile is applied to provide a linkage between the information needs expressed in the Questionnaire and the rules and queries provided by the payer in Clinical Quality Language (CQL).

Payers MAY also supply Questionnaire resources that conform to the Structured Data Capture (SDC) Advanced Rendering Profile to control how information requests will ultimately be presented to users.

DTR conformant SMART on FHIR applications SHALL support both the CQF-Questionnaire and SDC Advanced Rendering Profiles.’

Note that elements with example bindings or missing bindings will not be used.

DTR QuestionnaireResponse

The QuestionnaireResponse resource is used to represent a response to the Questionnaire presented by the payer. This profile uses the author extension when items are based on information input into the DTR process by the user.

DTR Task

The task resource is used to capture a request for additional actions that arise from the DTR flow. This may be a request for more information from the patient or a desire to schedule a follow up treatment in order to satisfy documentation requirements.


The CQL resource is used to query the Electronic Health Record (EHR) FHIR server to prepopulate the DTR Questionnaire.
