Why: The LawChildren’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA)
  • Section 401 (f) Development of Model EHR Format for Children Enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP
  • By 1/1/2010 the Secretary shall establish a program to encourage the development & dissemination of a model EHR Format for children
  • “Demonstrate the impact of the model EHR format for children developed and disseminated under subsection (f) on improving pediatric health, including the effects of chronic childhood conditions, and pediatric health care quality, as well as reducing health care costs”
  • AHRQ- and CMS-sponsored
  • Prime contractor: Westat
  • Subcontractors: AAP, AAFP, Duke, IMH, UMD
  • Technical Expert Panel
    • Broad constituency
    • Provides contents and review of document

Existing EHR systems often do not optimally support the provision of health care to children. The goal is to develop a model EHR Format for children, demonstrate that it can be readily used, and package it in a way that facilitates broad incorporation into EHR systems. The project will:

  • Develop a framework for the optimal EHR for children
  • Identify gaps between existing systems and this framework
  • Design, develop, test, and disseminate the model Format
  • Assess existing products for conformance with the Format
  • Demonstrate consumption of the Format

Accessible to Parents, Caregivers and Consumers

  • Designed to allow interoperable exchanges
  • Accessible
  • Interoperable
  • Viewable
  • Compatible
  • Viewable and understandable by Parents & Caregivers to assure quality
  • Compatible with other standards

Requirements for:

  • A minimum set of data elements
  • Applicable data standards
  • Usability
  • Functionality [MOST SIMILAR TO HL7 PROFILE]
  • Interoperability
  • Develop Format Consumption Models
  • Define the Format Design/Structure
  • Select the Environment for Format Development
  • Test and Refine and Format Design/Structure
  • Capture Existing HL7 Child Health FP into the Format
  • Additional Child Health Requirements
    • Develop Format for areas in project scope
    • Articulate areas beyond project scope
  • Develop a prototype and demonstrate consumption
the tep experience so far
The TEP Experience So Far
  • 2 face-to-face meetings (of 2 allowed) & 2 conference calls
  • Great opportunity to promote HL7 CH FP and CCHIT Child Health Certification
  • Very thorough evaluation of “child health” functions; good fodder for our R2
  • Uncertainty about prototype phase
