Health Level Seven (HL7), a healthcare IT standards development organization, has put in place the Emergency Care Functional Profile (EC FM) as the first registered profile based upon HL7's EHR System Functional Model (EHR-S FM) standard.

HL7's Emergency Care Special Interest Group (SIG) developed the EC FM for Emergency Department (ED) Information Systems to create an objective standard for the development, refinement, and evaluation of information systems employed in the ED.

The EHR-S FM and the Emergency Care Function Profile will facilitate solutions to underlying ED operational problems such as overcrowding, ambulance diversion and shortage of services.

The profiles below are a subset of the EHR-S FM, outlining the functions needed by clinicians using EHR systems for special purposes:

  • Legal EHR
  • Behavioral Health
  • Child Health
  • Long Term Care
  • Regulated Clinical Research
