Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Health Level Seven (HL7), announced it has passed the healthcare industry’s first ANSI-approved standard that specifies the basic functional requirements for child healthcare in an electronic health record (EHR) system.
The HL7 Child Health Functional Profile for EHR systems is based upon the HL7 EHR System Functional Model, which is also an ANSI-approved American National Standard.
The purpose of the Child Health Functional Profile is to define the general pediatric functions critical for electronic health record systems that are used to care for children in the United States. Five major functional topics are addressed that are essential for an EHR system used to care for children including immunization management, growth tracking, medication dosing, data norms and privacy.
