Application Functional Specifications




  • HL7 EHR-S Ambulatory Oncology Functional Profile, Release 1; DSTU May 2010


This is the Functional Profile for an ambulatory oncology setting based on, and conformant to, the ANSI approved June 2009 EHR-S Functional Model release 1.1.


The goal of the Electronic Health Record System Ambulatory Oncology Functional Profile Project is to create an HL7 EHR-S Functional Profile that will facilitate leveraging electronic health record (EHR) systems to support the ambulatory oncology care setting. The Ambulatory Oncology profile must articulate the functional requirements needed to support direct patient care including interoperability with other healthcare providers and supporting organizations.

Business Case (Intended Use, Customers)

The need for this project was expressed by member sites of the NCI Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP), for an EHR tailored to meet the unique needs of outpatient oncology practices. NCI’s Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology, in the form of its cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid program, was asked by the NCCCP program to study the problem and develop a solution available for deployment in NCCCP and other, similar, sites.
