Function ID

This is the unique outline identification of a function. Functions inherited from the HL7 EHR-S FM retain the ID assigned in the model. New functions added by the authors of the LTC-NH Functional Profile are underscored and shown in blue font.

  • Direct Care functions are identified by "DC" followed by a number (Example DC.1.1.3.1; DC.1.1.3.2).
  • Supportive functions are identified by an "S" followed by a number (Example S.2.1; S.2.1.1).
  • Information Infrastructure functions are identified by an "IN" followed by a number (Example IN.1.1; IN.1.2).

Function Type

Indication of the line item as being a header (H) or function (F).

Function Priority

Indication that implementation of the function is Essential Now (EN), Essential Future (EFxxxx), Optional (O), or Not Applicable (N/A). The definitions for these priorities are found above.

Function Name

The name of the Function (Example: Entity Authentication). Functions inherited from the HL7 EHR-S FM retain the Function Name as stated in the model. Names for new functions added by the authors of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile are underscored and shown in blue font.

Function Statement

Brief statement of the purpose of this function (Example: Authenticate EHR-S users and/or entities before allowing access to an EHR-S). Functions inherited from the HL7 EHR-S FM retain the Function Statement as shown in the model. Statements for new functions added by the authors of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile are underscored and shown in blue font.

Description

Detailed description of the function, including examples if needed (Example: Both users and applications are subject to authentication. The EHR-S must provide mechanisms for users and applications to be authenticated. Users will have to be authenticated when they attempt to use the application, the applications must authenticate themselves before accessing EHR information managed by other applications or remote EHR-S...) Functions inherited from the HL7 EHR-S FM retain the portions of the Description shown in the model that are relevant to the nursing home setting, with additional industry-specific explanation being underscored and shown in blue font. Descriptions for new functions added by the authors of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile are underscored and shown in blue font.

Conformance Criteria

This element displays valuable statements used to determine if a particular function is met (Example: The system SHALL authenticate principals prior to accessing an EHR-S application or EHR-S data). Modifications to conformance criteria inherited from the HL7 EHR-S FM are underscored and shown in blue font. Conformance criteria added to functions inherited from the functional model are indicated by an alpha designation (e.g., criterion #4a) and are underscored and shown in blue font. This numbering method allowed developers to display criteria in a logical sequence -- there is no relationship implied in regards to other criterion for the function. Finally, for new functions added to the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile, criterion are underscored and shown in blue font.

Row #

This element is provided to help users when navigating the various sections (i.e., a user can reference row #38 of the IN section versus stating function IN.1.6, criterion #5).

FM Source -- ID #

This element is intended to assist with tracing profile content back to the HL7 EHR-S FM. The column displays the ID# for the source function from the model, or is blank if the function was added by the authors of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile.

FM Source -- Criteria #

This element is intended to assist with tracing profile content back to the HL7 EHR-S FM. The column displays the number for the source criterion from the model, or is blank if the criterion was added by the authors of the LTC-NH EHR-S Functional Profile.

FM Source -- Criteria Status

This element is intended to assist with tracing profile content back to the HL7 EHR-S FM. The following codes are used to convey the status of the profile’s criteria in relation to the FM:

  • N/C (No Change) -- the criterion is exactly the same as in the FM.

  • A (Added) -- the criterion was added by the EHR-S Functional Profile authors and is not found in the FM.

  • M (Modified) -- the criterion has been modified and is not the same as in the FM. Modifications to the FM text are underscored and shown in blue font.

  • D (Deleted) -- the criterion from the FM was determined to be inappropriate for the profile and was deleted. Only “SHOULD” and “MAY” criterion can be deleted -- “SHALL” criteria from the FM must be inherited by the profile.
