STATEMENT: Schedule and manage tasks with appropriate timeliness.
DESCRIPTION: Since the electronic health record will replace the paper chart, tasks that were based on the paper artifact must be effectively managed in the electronic environment. Functions must exist in the EHR-S that support electronically any workflow that previously depended on the existence of a physical artifact (such as the paper chart, a phone message slip in a paper based system. Tasks differ from other more generic communication among participants in the care process because they are a call to action and target completion of a specific workflow in the context of a patient's health record (including a specific component of the record Tasks also require disposition (final resolution The initiator may optionally require a response. For example, in a paper based system, physically placing charts in piles for review creates a physical queue of tasks related to those charts. This queue of tasks (for example, a set of patient phone calls to be returned must be supported electronically so that the list (of patients to be called is visible to the appropriate user or role for disposition. Tasks are time-limited (or finite The state transition (e.g. created, performed and resolved may be managed by the user explicitly or automatically based on rules. For example, if a user has a task to signoff on a test result, that task should automatically be marked complete by the EHR when the test result linked to the task is signed in the system. Patients will become more involved in the care process by receiving tasks related to their care. Examples of patient related tasks include acknowledgement of receipt of a test result forwarded from the provider, or a request to schedule an appointment for a pap smear (based on age and frequency criteria generated automatically by the EHR-S on behalf of the provider.

STATEMENT: Upon notification by an external, authoritative source of a health risk within the cared for population, alert relevant providers regarding specific potentially at-risk patients with the appropriate level of notification.
DESCRIPTION: After receiving a notice of a health risk within a cared-for population from public health authorities or other external authoritative sources:
1. Identify and notify individual care providers or care managers that a risk has been identified and requires attention; and
2. Provide suggestions on the appropriate course of action.
A care provider now has the ability to decide how patients are notified, if necessary.
For example, this function may be used after detection of a local outbreak of hepatitis A, advising providers of the at-risk population and potential prophylactic treatment.
A second example might be the dissemination of new care guidelines for elderly patients with a specific chronic disease.
Notifications to clinicians or patients may occur by telephone, email, FAX or other methods

Examples of structured health information include:
- patient address (non-codified, but discrete field
- diastolic blood pressure (numeric
- coded result observation
- coded diagnosis
- patient risk assessment questionnaire with multiple-choice answers

Context may determine whether or not data are unstructured, e.g., a progress note might be standardized and structured in some EHRS (e.g., Subjective/Objective/Assessment/Plan but unstructured in others.

Structured health record information is divided into discrete fields, and may be enumerated, numeric or codified.

Examples of structured health information include:
- patient address (non-codified, but discrete field
- diastolic blood pressure (numeric
- coded result observation
- coded diagnosis
- patient risk assessment questionnaire with multiple-choice answers

Context may determine whether or not data are unstructured, e.g., a progress note might be standardized and structured in some EHR-S (e.g., Subjective/Objective/Assessment/Plan but unstructured in others.

Managing healthcare data includes capture, retrieval, deletion, correction, amendment, and augmentation. Augmentation refers to providing additional information regarding the healthcare data, which is not part of the data itself, e.g. linking patient consents or authorizations to the healthcare data of the patient.

STATEMENT: Receive and validate formatted inbound communications to facilitate updating of patient reminder information from external sources such as Cancer or Immunization Registries.

DESCRIPTION: Information from outside groups, such as immunization groups, public health organizations, etc. may periodically send updates to patient care providers. The system should be capable of generating patient reminders based on the recommendations of these organizations. Patient reminders could be provided to patients by a number of means including phone calls, or mail. A record of such reminders may become part of a patient's record. Examples of reminders could include a recommended immunization, prophylactic guidelines for MVP, patient self-testing for disease, etc.
