Children’s EHR format available in USHIK

From the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHQR):

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ’S) Children’s EHR Format has moved to the United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK). This  helps align the Children’s EHR Format with related knowledgebase information, such as IT artifacts related to meaningful use, health IT standards, & related clinical quality measures, as well as a friendlier user interface

The Children’s EHR Format, developed by AHRQ & the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), with input from the American Academy of Pediatrics, was released in February 2013.  The Children’s EHR Format is a set of child-specific requirements (& other requirements of special importance for children) that an EHR should meet to perform optimally for the particular health care needs of children.

Find the Children’s EHR Format here under the “Child EHR Format” tab.  For more information, follow this link: healthit.ahrq.gov/childehrformat.
