Core Functionality in Pediatric Electronic Health Records
A draft Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Technical Brief on pediatric electronic health record (EHR) functionality is now available for review. Comments are due no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on December 22, 2014. Note that a Technical Brief is a report of an emerging intervention for which there are limited published data and too few completed research studies to support definitive conclusions. The goals of the Technical Brief are to provide an objective description of the state of the science, identify a potential framework for assessing the applications and implications of the intervention, summarize ongoing research, and present research gaps. The AHRQ EPC developed a draft technical brief on the state of practice and the current literature around core functionalities for pediatric EHRs to describe current practice and to provide a framework for future research.
