The system SHOULD provide the ability to encode the names of medications and patient treatments commonly used for children using a terminology identified as a standard for documenting medication names.
Comment: EHR systems may use existing terminologies that represent clinical medications, such as MediSpan, First Data Bank or Multum to support this function. However, EHR systems may also maintain their own proprietary medication terminology. In either case, the scope of the functionality for EHR systems relates to their ability to allow users to encode medications according to a standard representation.

The system SHOULD provide the ability to encode laboratory and other testing names common to children using a terminology identified as a standard for documenting laboratory names .
Comment: In some cases, laboratory and other testing is managed by a laboratory information system that is either a component of or external to the EHR system. In those cases, the laboratory information system can use the terminology identified as a standard for documenting laboratory and testing names. In other cases, results from laboratory and other testing is entered directly into the EHR system by a healthcare provider. For example, office-based testing for streptococcus, pregnancy or infectious mononucleosis typically would not be documented in a laboratory information system. A user may prefer not to provide the terminology mapping to a specific vocabulary; however the EHR system may have this already linked in their system.
