VI. Description of Standard

Notes: A) Include separate statements for:

- objectives:

Objectives:

The objectives of Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality provides detailed information about the functionality (the CPR system) surrounding the core element (the CPR). It briefly describes the major benefits to be realized from a CPR system and defines the functions of data capture, data storage, information processing, information communication, security, and information presentation. The work summarizes concepts first described by the Institute of Medicine patient record study committee in The Computer-based Patient Record: An Essential Technology for Health Care, National Academy Press, April 1991.

Functions

The primary function of Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is to assist in understanding of the scope of the functionality of the computer-based patient record system.

User Environment

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is applicable to any provider implementing computer-based patient records, or any vendor developing CPR systems.

Functionality

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality may be used alone, or in conjunction with other CPRI descriptive materials. It is not dependent upon other standards.

Competing Standards

To our knowledge there is no other descriptive document serving this purpose.

VII. Readiness of Standard

Notes: A) Is it a guideline? If so, does it address policy,

process, practice or design?

Guideline:

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality addresses design.

Implementable

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is implementable by any organization that wishes to use it as a tool for planning.

Obtainable

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is available on CPRI=s web site (http://www.cpri.org). Paper copy can be obtained for a nominal fee from the Computer-based Patient Record Institute.

Implementation Guide

Not required.

Conformance Standard Specification

Since this is a guideline, conformance testing is not applicable

Development Stage

Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is final and was released in September 1996.

Extensions

Discussions are underway to develop an object-oriented view of computer-based patient records which may ultimately, but not at this time, substitute for this work.

VIII. Indicator of Market Acceptance

Notes: A) If the standard is a guideline, how many copies have been

requested and distributed?

Market Acceptance

No information is available about sales of this relatively new product.

IX. Level of Specificity

X. Relationships with other standards

Notes: A) Identify other standards and the relationship(s) with

other standards such as inclusion, dependency, interface

overlap, conflict or coordination.

B) Identify specific standards reconciliation or

coordination activities.

C) What portion of the specification and functionality is

affected by this coordination?

D) What conditions are assumed in order for this

coordination to be effective?

E) Is this standard consistent with international standards?

If so, which standards?

F) What gaps remain among related standards that should be

addressed?

G) Describe what is being done to address these gaps.

XI. Identifiable Costs

Notes: A) Please indicate the cost or your best estimate for the

following:

  • Cost of licensure
  • Cost of acquisition (if different from licensure)

Cost

Paper copy of Computer-based Patient Record System Description of Functionality is available from CPRI at a cost of $15. See above for web site availability.

  • Cost/timeframes for education and training
  • Cost/timeframes for implementation
  • Please note any other cost considerations.

VI. Description of Standard

Notes: A) Include separate statements for:

- objectives:

Objectives:

The objectives of CPR Project Scenarios are to illustrate the scope of computer-based patient record systems, and to serve as a useful tool for strategic planning, requirements descriptions, and for creating test sets for live system demonstrations.

Functions

The primary function of CPR Project Scenarios is to illustrate, in understandable terms, the scope of computer-based patient records systems in multiple different views.

- user environment (reimbursement, administrative,

clinical and/or other functional areas)

User Environment

CPR Project Scenarios is designed to be used primarily in the understanding of computer-based patient records as they may be implemented for a variety of purposes. Illustrated are physician access from home, ambulatory care with patient as remote user, weekend urgent care, rural health care, inpatient care for emergency surgery, visiting nurse providing home care, public health reporting, and research.

- systems environment (operating systems, network,

hardware or other requirements)

- Application function/domain completeness (Within the

defined scope of this standard, what functions/codes

are complete?

Functionality

CPR Project Scenarios may be used alone, or in conjunction with other CPRI descriptive materials. They are not dependent upon other standards.

- In what way(s) is this standard superior to other

standards in this category/classification?

Competing Standards

To our knowledge there is no other tool that provides scenarios for visioning and strategic planning, education programs, etc.

- any other relevant characteristics

VII. Readiness of Standard

Notes: A) Is it a guideline? If so, does it address policy,

process, practice or design?

Guidelines:

CPR Project Scenarios address design.

B) Is it implementable? (If so, is it fully or partially

implementable?, explain)

Implementable

CPR Project Scenarios is implementable by any organization that wishes to use it as a tool for planning.

C) How can the standard be obtained?

Obtainable

CPR Project Scenarios can be obtained for a nominal fee from the Computer-based Patient Record Institute.

D) Does it require a separate implementation guide? (If so

is the guide approved by the SDO?

Implementation Guide

Not required.

E) Is there only one implementation guideline (or are there

major options that impact compatibility)?

Conformance Standard Specification

Since this is a guideline, conformance testing is not applicable

F) Is a conformance standard specified?

G) Are conformance test tools available?

H) Source of test tools?

I) If the standard is under development, what parts of it
