The HL7 International EHR System Functional Model (EHR-S FM) outlines important features and functions that should be contained in an EHR system. The function list is described from a user perspective with the intent to enable consistent expression of system functionality. This EHRS Functional Model, through the creation of Functional Profiles for care settings and realms, enables a standardized description and common understanding of functions sought or available in a given setting (e.g., intensive care, cardiology, office practice in one country and primary care in another country.
The HL7 EHR Behavioral Health Functional Profile is just one of several functional profiles created by HL7 and are available for download from the HL7 website (www.hl7.org).
