(No Match) Implementation Notes: Pediatricians have long acted as “medical homes” for their patients. (The medical home concept has now become a part of “best practices” for all health care delivery.) Establishing a medical home requires building a complete and integrated care team, and such care teams require communication. Knowing who is a part of a child’s care team—and being able to track, update, and facilitate the communications of that team—requires an integration sophistication only achievable through, and in direct association with, the child’s EHR. For an EHR to adequately address the needs of children, the system should be able to record any and all members of a child’s care team. Most preferred would be an automatic recording of an individual’s care teams that would include: • health care providers, including ancillary services; • family members, including relatives, caretakers, and guardians; • friends and peer groups, as deemed important for the child’s health care maintenance and support,including social, emotional, and medical support; • school system personnel, including school nurses, teachers, coaches, trainers, and team health care affiliates; • community health resource centers and providers, including local, regional, and those that may be at a distance (for children receiving specialized services from distant specialty care centers/providers); and • institutions and organizations affiliated with the child’s care. HL7 currrently is completing work on a standarized list for care coordination in their “Coordination of Care Services Specification Project.” This list would provide a quality reference for establishing the guidelines for EHR system implementation needs.
