Children’s Electronic Health Record Format Moved to USHIK
AHRQ’s Children’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) Format has been moved to the United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK). The transition to USHIK helps align the Children’s EHR Format with related knowledgebase information on topics such as meaningful use, health IT standards and related clinical quality measures, as well as a friendlier user interface. The Children’s EHR Format, developed by AHRQ and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services with input from the American Academy of Pediatrics, is a set of child-specific requirements and other requirements of special importance for children that an EHR should meet to perform optimally for the particular health care needs of children. It can be accessed from navigation buttons on the USHIK home page.
