Description: The HL7 International EHR System Functional Model (EHR-S FM) outlines important features and functions that should be contained in an EHR system. Through the creation of functional profiles, this model provides a standard description and common understanding of functions for healthcare settings. To date, HL7 has developed or is developing profiles for areas, such as child health, emergency care, long term care, behavioral health and vital statistic reporting. Release 2 builds on Release 1.1 of the model, offering a more comprehensive set of functions and criteria. The work is informed by industry advances/directions, regulatory changes, learning from work from functional profiles, and participation by the international community.
