Project Overview

Welcome to HL7's Ambulatory Oncology EHR Functional Profile wiki page.

The objective of this project is to develop an HL7 EHR Functional Profile for the ambulatory oncology setting based on, and conformant to, the ANSI approved June 2009 EHR-S Functional Model release 1.1.

A draft functional profile has been developed by the NCI and contributed as a starting point to the HL7 standards development process. This profile leverages requirements work previously undertaken by the NCI in collaboration with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and various stakeholders from the NCI Community Cancer Care Program (NCCCP). This draft profile is based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved HL7 EHR-S Functional Model Release 1.1. It is hoped that the work going forward will not only progress the profile but maintain bi-directional alignment, as much as possible, with the emerging EHR-S FM Release 2.0 (R2) as it is presently being devised by the EHR Working Group (EHR WG).

We invite participants with knowledge and interest in Oncology health care and research to join in the dialog and to support the refinement and eventual balloting of the profile.

The project goal is to progress the Ambulatory Oncology FP through the HL7 balloting to achieve DSTU approval with a view towards establishing a profile that meets the needs of the Oncology health care and research sector(s).

The EHR-S Oncology FP Task Group volunteers will review the profile and related documents from various oncology perspectives, document their recommendations, and present these recommendations to the HL7 EHR Working Group. Volunteers are invited to participate in conference calls during the Task Group timeframe.

Status Update

To-date the AOFP project has been facilitated primary by Helen Stevens under the support of the NCI caEHR project. However, in May 2010 a change in focus and direction within the caEHR project occurred. As of January 2011, the NCI is continuing to determine the best way to support the activities within AOFP project going forward.
