Current Projects

Projects where Pediatric/Child Health Input is Welcomed/Needed

  • Exercise Physiology Domain Analysis Model
  • Pediatric Podiatric Concepts

Past Projects

  • Child Health Profile of the HL7 EHR Functional Model
  • Quality Reporting Document Architecture
  • Neonatal Care Report
  • Neonatal Care Profile of the EHR Functional Model describes functionality necessary for a U.S. neonatologist to provide care to newborns in the (1) delivery room, (2) neonatal intensive care unit (including level III ICUs), (3) outpatient follow-up of NICU graduates through their second birthday, and (4) during transport to other care facilities. It does not necessarily include functions necessary to provide subspecialty or surgical care in these environments, except as required by the neonatologist’s participation in those activities. However, the project will explore including functions to support ophthalmology follow-up after discharge for preterm infants, which is very time sensitive.
  • Version 2 of the Child Health Profile of the EHR Functional Model. We have contributed to Version 2 of the EHR Functional Model and await its final form (targeted ballot date: November 2011) before proceeding with our version 2. In the mean time, we are taking suggestions for additions or modifications to the profile.
  • Technical Expertise for the Child Health Format Project
