Lecture: EHR Functional Model Standards and HL7


Co-Chair of the EHR Group at HL7 International, a foremost expert on HL7 Functional Models and one of its creators.


HL7 provides standards for interoperability that improve care delivery, optimize workflow, reduce ambiguity and enhance knowledge transfer among all of our stakeholders, including healthcare providers, government agencies, the vendor community, fellow SDOs and patients. HL7 builds on its solid foundation of international healthcare information technology standards by offering the Electronic Health Record System Functional Model (EHR-S FM) as an ISO – approved standard for Electronic Health Record System functionality.  Functional models describe the behavior of a system in user-oriented language so as to be recognizable to the key stakeholders. of an EHR System. Typical areas include:
Care Management, Clinical Decision Support, Operations Management and  Communication, Clinical Support, MMasurement, Analysis, Research and Reports, Administrative and Financial Information, Infrastructure for Security, Health Record Information and Management, Registry and Directory Services, Standard Terminologies & Terminology Services, Standards-based Interoperability, Business Rules Management and Workflow Management. In this presentation, we will relate how the HL7 FM model for EHRs has evolved, is structured and how it relates to other HL7 standards. We will also discuss the differences between conformity to standards and EHR certifiction and present some current activities in the area o Functional Models.
