Part of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Grant Program that attempts to define what an electronic health record used in child health ought to do in order to provide ideal care. The document (“format”) was developed through discussion with a broad range of stakeholders. There was no attempt to make this document a rigorous EHR functionality specification. It’s best described as a collection of good ideas about things an EHR should do in the child-health environment. A response to the use of the “format” indicated that the content had some face validity, but set a high bar for current EHR systems. The document can be downloaded from the AHRQ’s United States Health Information Knowledgebase.
