Jump to: navigation, search

Archetype Query Language (AQL) is a declarative query language developed specifically for expressing queries used for searching and retrieving the clinical data found in archetype-based EHRs. AQL expresses the queries at the archetype level, i.e. semantic level, rather than at the data instance level. This supports sharing queries across system boundaries or enterprise boundaries.

[JL: replaced "other than" with "rather than"; "is the key in achieving" with "supports"]
