"We have been pleased to partner with AHRQ on this first and much needed step to move EHR products to better capture the health care needs of children and adolescents," said Cindy Mann, CMS deputy administrator and director of CMS's Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services. "The EHR format provides a foundation upon which developers can build EHRs that, by differentiating between children and adults, ultimately will lead to better quality information about children's health."AHRQ and CMS led development of the children's EHR format by multiple experts including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Family Physicians. The format is built on specifications from sources that include the Health Level Seven International (HL7®) EHR-S Functional Model, the HL7 Child Health Work Group's Child Health Functional Profile and the HHS Health Resources and Services Administration's Health IT for Children Toolbox.
