In addition to this Overview section, the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile is organized into three sections of system requirements as follows.
|Direct Care||Functions employed in the provision of care to individual patients and to collect information that will comprise the patients EHR. Direct care functions are the subset of functions that enable delivery of health care or offer clinical decision support.|
|Supportive Functions||Functions that support the delivery and optimization of care, but generally do not impact the direct care of an individual patient. These functions assist with the administrative and financial requirements associated with the delivery of health care, provide support for medical research and public health, and improve the global quality of health care.|
|Information Infrastructure||Functions that support the reliability, integrity, security and interoperability of the EHR-S. These functions are not involved in the provision of health care, but are necessary to ensure the integrity and security of the patients electronic health information.|
