Abbreviation: AQL
Definition: 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, other than at the data instance level. This is the key in achieving sharing queries across system boundaries or enterprise boundaries.
