Care Management functions are those directly used by providers as they deliver patient care and create an electronic health record. The Record Management (Req-106 functions address the mechanics of creating a health record and concepts such as a single logical health record, managing patient demographics, and managing externally generated (including patient originated health data. Thereafter, The additional Care Management functions follow a fairly typical flow of patient care activities and corresponding data, starting with managing the patient history and progressing through consents, assessments, care plans, orders, results etc.

Integral to these care management activities is an underlying system foundation that maintains the privacy, security, and integrity of the captured health information - the information infrastructure of the EHR-S. Throughout the DC functions, conformance criteria formalize the relationships to Information Infrastructure functions. Criteria that apply to all Care Management functions are listed in this header (see Conformance Clause page six for discussion of "inherited" conformance criteria

In the Direct Care functions there are times when actions/activities related to "patients" are also applicable to the patient representative. Therefore, in this section, the term "patient" could refer to the patient and/or the patient's personal representative (e.g. guardian, surrogate

Provide automated health care delivery processes and seamless exchange of clinical, administrative, and financial information through standards-based solutions.
Interoperability standards enable an EHR-S to operate as a set of applications. This results in a unified view of the system where the reality is that several disparate systems may be coming together.
Interoperability standards also enable the sharing of information between EHR systems, including the participation in regional, national, or international information exchanges.
Timely and efficient access to information and capture of information is promoted with minimal impact to the user.

STATEMENT: Capture and maintain medical, procedural/surgical, social and family history including the capture of pertinent positive and negative histories, patient-reported or externally available patient clinical history.
DESCRIPTION: The history of the current illness and patient historical data related to previous medical diagnoses, surgeries and other procedures performed on the patient, and relevant health conditions of family members is captured through such methods as patient reporting (for example interview, medical alert band or electronic or non-electronic historical data. This data may take the form of a pertinent positive such as: "The patient/family member has had..." or a pertinent negative such as "The patient/family member has not had..." When first seen by a health care provider, patients typically bring with them clinical information from past encounters. This and similar information is captured and presented alongside locally captured documentation and notes wherever appropriate.

STATEMENT: Alert providers to potential administration errors (such as wrong patient, wrong drug, wrong dose, wrong route and wrong time in support of safe and accurate medication administration and support medication administration workflow.
DESCRIPTION: To reduce medication errors at the time of administration of a medication, the patient is positively identified; checks on the drug, the dose, the route and the time are facilitated. Documentation is a by-product of this checking; administration details and additional patient information, such as injection site, vital signs, and pain assessments, are captured.
Access to drug monograph information may be provided to allow providers to check details about a drug and enhance patient education. Workflow for medication administration is supported through prompts and reminders regarding the "window" for timely administration of medications.

STATEMENT: Enable the enforcement of the applicable jurisdictional and organizational patient privacy rules as they apply to various parts of an EHR-S through the implementation of security mechanisms.
DESCRIPTION: Patients' privacy and the confidentiality of EHRs are violated if access to EHRs occurs without authorization. Violations or potential violations can impose tangible economic or social losses on affected patients, as well as less tangible feelings of vulnerability and pain. Fear of potential violations discourages patients from revealing sensitive personal information that may be relevant to diagnostic and treatment services. Rules for the protection of privacy and confidentiality may vary depending upon the vulnerability of patients and the sensitivity of records. Strongest protections should apply to the records of minors and the records of patients with stigmatized conditions. Authorization to access the most sensitive parts of an EHR is most definitive if made by the explicit and specific consent of the patient. Please see the definition of masking in the glossary.

STATEMENT: Provide audit capabilities for system access and usage indicating the author, the modification (where pertinent and the date and time at which a record was created, modified, viewed, extracted, or deleted. Date and Time stamping implies the ability to indicate the time zone where it was recorded (time zones are described in ISO 8601 Standard Time Reference Auditable records extend to information exchange, to audit of consent status management (to support Req-256 (HL7 ID: DC.1.3.3 and to entity authentication attempts. Audit functionality includes the ability to generate audit reports and to interactively view change history for individual health records or for an EHR-S.
DESCRIPTION: Audit functionality extends to security audits, data audits, audits of data exchange, and the ability to generate audit reports. Audit capability settings should be configurable to meet the needs of local policies. Examples of audited areas include:
- Security audit, which logs access attempts and resource usage including user login, file access, other various activities, and whether any actual or attempted security violations occurred
- Data audit, which records who, when, and by which system an EHR record was created, updated, translated, viewed, extracted, or (if local policy permits deleted. Audit-data may refer to system setup data or to clinical and patient management data
- Information exchange audit, which records data exchanges between EHR-S applications (for example, sending application; the nature, history, and content of the information exchanged and information about data transformations (for example, vocabulary translations, reception event details, etc.
- Audit reports should be flexible and address various users' needs. For example, a legal authority may want to know how many patients a given healthcare provider treated while the provider's license was suspended. Similarly, in some cases a report detailing all those who modified or viewed a certain patient record
- Security audit trails and data audit trails are used to verify enforcement of business, data integrity, security, and access-control rules
-There is a requirement for system audit trails for the following events:
>Loading new versions of, or changes to, the clinical system;
>Loading new versions of codes and knowledge bases;
>Taking and restoring of backup;
>Changing the date and time where the clinical system allows this to be done;
>Archiving any data;
>Re-activating of an archived patient record;
>Entry to and exiting from the clinical system;
>Remote access connections including those for system support and maintenance activities

STATEMENT: Enable version control according to customized policies to ensure maintenance of utilized standards.
This includes the ability to accommodate changes to terminology sets as the source terminology undergoes its natural update process (new codes, retired codes, redirected codes Such changes need to be cascaded to clinical content embedded in templates, custom formularies, etc., as determined by local policy.
DESCRIPTION: Version control allows for multiple sets or versions of the same terminology to exist and be distinctly recognized over time.
Terminology standards are usually periodically updated, and concurrent use of different versions may be required. Since the meaning of a concept can change over time, it is important that retrospective analysis and research maintains the ability to relate changing conceptual meanings. If the terminology encoding for a concept changes over time, it is also important that retrospective analysis and research can correlate the different encodings to ensure the permanence of the concept. This does not necessarily imply that complete older versions of the terminology be kept in the EHR-S, only access to the changes needs to be maintained.
It should be possible to retire deprecated versions when applicable business cycles are completed while maintaining obsolescent code sets. An example use of this is for possible claims adjustment throughout the claim's lifecycle.

STATEMENT: Provide report generation features using tools internal or external to the system, for the generation of standard reports.
DESCRIPTION: Providers and administrators need access to data in the EHR-S for clinical, administrative, financial decision-making, audit trail and metadata reporting, as well as to create reports for patients. Many systems may use internal or external reporting tools to accomplish this (such as Crystal Report
Reports may be based on structured data and/or unstructured text from the patient's health record.
Users need to be able to sort and/or filter reports. For example, the user may wish to view only the diabetic patients on a report listing patients and diagnoses.

DESCRIPTION: Healthcare requires secure communications among various participants: patients, doctors, nurses, chronic disease care managers, pharmacies, laboratories, payers, consultants, and etcetera. An effective EHRS supports communication across all relevant participants, reduces the overhead and costs of healthcare-related communications, and provides automatic tracking and reporting. The list of communication participants is determined by the care setting and may change over time. Because of concerns about scalability of the specification over time, communication participants for all care settings or across care settings are not enumerated here because it would limit the possibilities available to each care setting and implementation. However, communication between providers and between patients and providers will be supported in all appropriate care settings and across care settings. Implementation of the EHRS enables new and more effective channels of communication, significantly improving efficiency and patient care. The communication functions of the EHRS will eventually change the way participants collaborate and distribute the work of patient care.
