Long-Term Care-Nursing Homes EHR-Systems Functional Profile: Release 1. 5.2. Functional Priorities

07/01/2008

The LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile Workgroup recognizes that clinical computing is an evolving field, and that many of the desired functions of EHR systems are not currently available. Nevertheless, it is important for functional profiles to outline major trends and articulate a vision for functionality (especially interoperability) for the future. Furthermore, the delineation of potential functions for future implementation and adoption should guide vendors in system development, and help purchasers develop and articulate to vendors a strategic vision for future functional requirements.

Each function in the profile is assigned a single priority as follows:

EN Essential Now Indicates that the implementation of the function is mandatory and SHALL be implemented in EHR systems claiming conformance to this profile.
EF xxxx   Essential Future   Indicates that the function has significant importance but is not widely available. The function will become mandatory and SHALL be implemented in EHR systems claiming conformance to this profile by the end of the year identified.
O Optional Indicates that, while the function may have value to some organizations, it is not viewed as being essential.
N/A Not Applicable Function not applicable in the nursing home setting and rejected for purposes of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile.
