  • HL7 EHR-System Electronic Nutrition Care Process Record System (ENCPRS) Functional Profile, Release 2; balloting normative May 2018


Summary

This project creates an Electronic Nutrition Care Process Record System (ENCPRS) Functional Profile based on the Electronic Health Record System Functional Model R2 (EHRS-FM). This project will be conducted as a joint work effort between HL7 and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy), where the Academy’s Interoperability and Standards Committee and Nutrition Care Process Research Outcomes Committee updates the content and documents workflow relevant to the ENCPRS. Other Academy internal groups and international colleagues will review the work and provide relevant input and/or revision. The workgroup will consist of subject matter experts from nutrition practice, nutrition software vendors, implementers, and informaticians. The intent is to develop a standard list of functions and criteria needed for full integration of both the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and the representative terms from the electronic Nutrition Care Process Terminology (eNCPT), as represented by appropriately mapped SNOMED-CT, LOINC for nutrition care in EHRs. The NCP serves as a systematic approach to providing high quality nutrition care. This standardization will encourage the acquisition of EHR systems by nutrition health providers and promote information interoperability between nutrition and food systems and other areas of healthcare.

The project is aimed at developing a Functional Profile that identifies critical capabilities for the performance of nutrition services utilizing EHR systems. This work will establish conformance to the HL7 International EHR-S Functional Model Release 2, under the advice and direction of the HL7 International EHR Technical Committee. A set of requirements is developed for using E HR systems in the documentation of the Nutrition Care Process. These requirements have been mapped into this functional profile and identify those portions of the HL7 EHR-S Functional Model that apply to patient care in the Nutrition Care Process, and further identify additional functionality toward facilitating ease of use for those involved in patient care in the Nutrition Care Process, thus providing EHR vendors with conformance criteria that are specific to regulated tasks within the Nutrition Care Process in the HL7 International formats.

Business Case (Intended Use, Customers)

  • Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,
  • Clinical and Public Health Laboratories, Quality Reporting Agencies, Regulatory Agency, Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) , Payors
  • Vendors: Pharmaceutical, EHR, PHR, Equipment , Health Care IT, Clinical Decision Support Systems, Lab, HIS, Other
  • Providers: Clinical and Public Health Laboratories, Emergency Services, Local and State Departments of Health, Healthcare Institutions (hospitals, long term care, home care, mental health),

Benefits

Most electronic health record systems have limited functionality that supports the actions of a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) in providing individual nutrition care. In most cases, nutrition documentation and data are designed at the facility level. Limitations in local resources, knowledge of systems design and nutrition best practices creates an inconsistent use of key data that should be interoperable and available for quality metrics reporting.

Summary

This project will create an Electronic Nutrition Care Process Record System (ENCPRS) Functional Profile based on the Electronic Health Record System Functional Model R1.1 (EHRS-FM).

The intent is to develop a standard list of functions and criteria needed for full integration of both the nutrition care process and the International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology (IDNT) for nutrition care in the ENCPRS into the EHRS, which leverages the placement of the IDNT terminology in UMLS, LOINC and/or SNOMED. This standardization will encourage the acquisition of EHR systems by nutrition health providers and promote information interoperability between nutrition and food systems and other areas of healthcare for a more complete patient care experience.

Description

This project will be conducted as a joint work effort between HL7,the American Dietetic Association (ADA) and the International Confederation of Dietetic Associations (ICDA), where the ADA Nutrition Care Process-Standardized Language (NCP-SL) Committee creates the content and documents workflow relevant to the ENCPRS and the ICDA reviews the work and provides relevant input and/or revision. The workgroup will consist of subject matter experts from nutrition practice and nutrition software vendors.

While we identified multiple products in Section 1, this project is not going to address v.2 and v.3 messaging; however, since there is every intention to link this functional profile to HL7 artifacts which are going to be defined in another project scope statement. The reference in section one to the v.2 and v.3 is for the purpose of cross-referencing the two projects and indicating the connection to other work that has been or is being accomplished.
