(No Match) Implementation Notes: Studies have demonstrated the value of maintaining a periodic visit schedule in responding to parent questions, providing immunizations, and assessing child development and behavior. This requirement refers to the ability to track adherence of a single patient to this recommended periodicity of visits, using the Bright Futures guidelines as a common standard. It differs from Req-2025 in that it focuses on the periodicity of visits and not on visit-specific content. It differs from Req-2024 in that it focuses on a single patient’s overall compliance with the periodicity schedule. Ideally, an EHR developing this monitoring also should provide the capability to retroactively enter dates of previous visits in a way that seamlessly integrates with the practice schedule data from which this sort of report normally would be generated. This functionality would be important for a child transferring into a practice, or for a child with fragmented care and visits that occur at another location that cannot exchange such data electronically.
